Looking at Reflection within a Community of Practice of RTLBs
Soljan, Ivanka; Stanghan, Yvonne; Henry, Anna
Kairaranga, v14 n1 p11-15 2013
The term "reflection" is defined as a contemplation of one's teaching craft with the view to improving it (Edwards & Thomas, 2010). Reflection is supported by a number of theories and is considered a key component of RTLB work. A community of practice (CoP), when used as a space for reflection, provides the potential for multiple and critical lenses to examine practice and enables a deeper, clearer understanding of casework. This article discusses some of the theory relating to reflection, positions reflection within a community of practice, and illustrates how it can be applied in the RTLB context. (Contains 1 figure.)
