TEP The Role of Reflection in Learning

Reflective practice is a deliberate way of thinking that leads to change in action (Dewey, 1933; Schön, 1983).

The development of reflective skills and the process of engaging in reflective practice also prompts self-learning and encourages the integration of academic knowledge with relevant personal and professional experience.
