Critical reflection is the most misunderstood concept of the NQS. That’s why we need to look at the EYLF and MTOP to get a proper definition and a better understanding. The EYLF and MTOP say “Critical reflection involves closely examining all aspects of events and experiences from different perspectives.”
Is that what your educators are doing? Or are they writing a time log of the day, or evaluating rather than reflecting? This course will show you exactly what critical reflection is and how to do it. More importantly, it will show you what critical reflection is not and why.
In our “Critical Reflections Training” course we will teach your educators how to:
- Reflect critically by closely examining all aspects of events and experiences through the eyes of children, families, educators, Nominated Supervisor, community and theorists
- Identify the difference between reflecting and evaluating
- Use critical reflections and the exceeding theme indicators for critical reflection to make well informed decisions and plans to improve practice.
