Developing a Reflective Practitioner through the Connection between Educational Research and Reflective Practices
Del Carlo, Dawn; Hinkhouse, Holly; Isbell, Leah
Journal of Science Education and Technology, v19 n1 p58-68 Feb 2010
This paper outlines the connection between qualitative research methods in education and teacher reflective practices as they relate to Valli's ("Reflective teacher education: cases and critiques." State University of New York Press, Albany, 1992; "Peabody J Educ" 72(1): 67-88, 1997) model of reflection. Using the authors' own experiences in performing and guiding educational research, and existing research in the field of teacher education pertaining to reflective practitioners, explicit connections are made between the two paradigms. These connections illustrate the importance of integrating authentic research experiences into the teacher education curriculum outside the context of methods courses, much like models established in the sciences.
