Reflective Practitioner

Surface Reflection

Teachers that are concern with what works in the classroom to keep students quiet and maintain order, rather than with any consideration.  In other words  it is someone concern with self interest.

Reflective Practitioner

A reflective practitioner learn from experience engages in ongoing Self development workshops or courses. He continues to solicits feedback, remain open to alternative perspective to broaden scope of knowledge. He/she assumes responsibilities for own learning, and getting out of the box to experience new knowledge and understanding. Self reflection entails revision of past exercises, and use prior knowledge to equate it with new information. One also observes self in the process of thinking, committed to continuous improvement. Practitioner practice, and strive to align behaviour with values, beliefs, seeks to develop what is true.
Reflection always brings one back to how a plan worked, what been attained, what was expected and what needs to be done to meet that goal.

The reflective practitioner always records the outcome of an instruction. Keeping students’ interest in mind, it is also the role of the practitioner to be observant and keep track of class progress, to know whether the method of teaching was effective, what worked, what need to be changed and what needs to be omitted.  The objective is to act in the best interest of students and know that the learning is taking place.
