About this event

Learning without reflection is a waste. Reflection without learning is dangerous. - Confucius.

Great educators are self-reflective, continually thinking about what worked and what didn’t work in their daily practice and then using that information to make adjustments. School leaders can play an important role in supporting teachers’ reflection processes. By establishing shared structures for reflection, dedicating time for reflection, and working side-by-side with teachers to unpack and innovate based on those reflections, school leaders demonstrate their commitment to reflective practice.

In this workshop, we’ll:

  • explore how adult learners use reflection as a way to process, draw connections, find relevance, and make meaning from their experiences;
  • learn about the common elements of effective reflection practices;
  • think about how we might expand our go-to reflection practices to include things like journaling, peer conferencing, video, and audio recording.
  • brainstorm ways that school leaders can help teachers use their reflections as the starting place for innovation - tackle the “and now what?” question.
  • create and receive feedback on a draft framework for implementing a multi-faceted, embedded approach to reflection with your faculty and staff.
