Welcome to our website, where you will find all the information you require on our 2011/12 seminar series, 'Critical Reflection in the Professions: the Research Way Forward'.
The purpose of the seminars is to develop the research aspect of critical reflection in professional practice (what is researched, how it is researched and how it might be used as a research method) so that it might be taught, learnt and practised better. This involves:
- Providing an overview of different perspectives on critical reflection and stimulating dialogue between them. This will contribute to better possibilities for multi-perspectival research.
Establishing some common platforms from which to develop further research directions.
Identifying some common themes which require further research.
Providing a forum to chart and discuss the evidence base for critical reflection
Identifying the major issues in evaluating critical reflection teaching and the main methods for doing so.
Contributing to social science methodological innovations by exploring newer methods for researching professional practice, in particular using methods based on critical reflection.
Initiate the establishment of an international interdisciplinary network for the reseah of critical reflection.
We look forward to welcoming you at one of our events.
