HEFi Reading Group: Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher: Clarifying the Benefits of Critical Reflection

Monday 24 October 2022 (10:00-11:00)


Chapter 5: Clarifying the Benefits of Critical Reflection from "Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher" by Stephen Brookfield  Read: https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/bham/reader.action?docID=4790372. In this chapter I want to review the claims that can be made for integrating the critically reflective habit into our teaching. Critical reflection is not a means of ensuring alignment with an institutional mission or a way to secure institutional accreditation. The last thing I want is for it to be formulaically applied to keep teachers in line. On the contrary, critical reflection illuminates and challenges subtly hidden forms of manipulation. The case for reflection lies instead in the pursuit of pedagogic, political, and emotional clarity.
