Designing for Reflective Practice in Legal Education
McNamara, Judith; Field, Rachael
Journal of Learning Design, v2 n1 p66-76 2007
Including reflective practice in tertiary learning design is one way of working towards making effective learning possible for students. This article considers how elements of reflective practice in teaching delivery and assessment have been successful in satisfying principles of effective teaching in the context of the study of law at first year level. The article also critically considers how some of the theoretical perspectives on reflective practice do not always resonate with the real learning experience of students, and makes suggestions in terms of addressing these issues, particularly in relation to assessment.
