The Reflective Teacher
The Reflective Teacher: using action learning to improve teaching aims to make available to teachers and those supporting teachers, materials which illustrate and explain how other teachers have used action learning in a range of settings.
The materials (in kit form including a handbook and video) have been developed for teachers, school leaders, support personnel and facilitators of teams.
The handbook explains reflective practice as a professional activity in which the practitioner reflects, both in-action and on-action in order to improve their professional effectiveness. The video shows teachers from Western Australian government schools engaging in various action learning processes, many for the first time, unrehearsed and unscripted.
The DVD-video allows these teachers and project coordinators to talk about their experiences of action learning, the gains, the risks and the lessons learned.
