With different children of different personalities from different age groups, there is always room to evolve and refine your skills as an educator. Taking the time to reflect on your practice can help you to improve as an educator as you become more self-aware of your own teaching practices and needs. Reflection is a process of self-examination and self-evaluation that goes beyond simply filling out reflective journals. The practice of self-reflection is taking an honest look at your actions and decisions and recognizing how they may have affected you, your work, and the people around you.
In this course, we will relook at the meaning of engaging in reflective practices and why it plays a significant role in professional growth. We will also discuss the roadblocks to reflection and share strategies to overcome these barriers.
