Reflective Practice 19.9.2022

As professionals we make a moral commitment to serve the interests of students by thinking about their well-being and their progress, and deciding how best it can be fostered or promoted.  We also review from time to time the nature and effectiveness of our practice in order to improve the quality of our teaching and decision-making.  Our third commitment is to continue to develop our practical knowledge through personal reflection and through conversation and dialogue with others (Eraut, 1995).

This webinar for primary and post-primary teachers will give teachers an opportunity to revisit their learning on reflective practice and its critical importance in the lives of educators. 

Learning intentions: 

  • Participants will deepen their understanding of reflective practice, whether as an individual or with others, in order to improve their teaching and so impact positively on education provision within their schools
  • Participants may choose to keep a reflective journal or to record their learning experiences digitally

Facilitator:   Carmel Lillis, Advanced Dip. in Personal Leadership and Executive Coaching, M.Ed, B.A. Carmel has worked as a school principal and as a part-time lecturer on leadership courses in Maynooth University. She now works as an independent consultant and coach. Carmel also pursues research with Dr. Gerry Jeffers, MU.  Their recent research 'Responding to Educational Inequality in Ireland; Harnessing teachers’ perspectives to develop a framework for professional conversations' has been published by Education Studies: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/03055698.2021.19310
