Now in its second edition, Teaching and Learning through Reflective Practice is a practical guide to enable all those involved in educational activities to learn through the practices of reflection. The book highlights the power that those responsible for teaching and learning have to appraise, understand and positively transform their teaching. Seeing the teacher as a reflective learner, the book emphasises a strengths-based approach in which positivity, resilience, optimism and high performance can help invigorate teaching, enhance learning and allow the teacher to reach their full potential. This approach busts the myth that reflection on problems and deficits is the only way to better performance. The approach of this new edition is an ‘appreciative’ one. At its heart is the exploration and illustration of four reflective questions: What’s working well? What needs changing? What are we learning? Where do we go from here? With examples drawn from UK primary teacher education, the book reveals how appreciative reflective conversations can be initiated and sustained. It also sets out a range of practical processes for amplifying success. This book will be a must have for undergraduate and PGCE students on initial teacher training programmes. It will also interest practising teachers, teacher educators and those on continuing professional development courses.

At its heart, outstanding teaching is about leadership, and reflective practice is the essential foundation for advancing academic leadership in the classroom and beyond. Teaching in higher education is a complex and multi-faceted endeavor. It is highly creative, relational, dynamic and inspiring, and also demanding in a context of changing student expectations and the proliferation of knowledge across all disciplines and professions. Given that learning is completely volitional on the part of your students, high-impact teaching involves inspiring, motivating and facilitating rich and authentic learning experiences. Within all of the complexity of the teaching role, how do you know where you are most effective, and where you can further grow and develop? Reflective practice is the key! Whether you are new to teaching or are an experienced college faculty member, this manual offers a roadmap for your own personal journey of discovery and growth, with a wide range of tools and resources to help you in advancing your teaching excellence. The activities and resources in this manual have been drawn from research and scholarship on teaching in higher education, as well as the lived experience of a diverse group of faculty members and other academic leaders, to support you in your learning journey across the many dimensions of your role. Personal stories, case examples, and reflections from faculty colleagues are offered throughout, bringing the material to life and establishing direct linkages with the ‘art and science’ of teaching and learning. I believe the time spent on reflection is a gift; it allows us the distance necessary to understand the complexity, joy, challenges and learnings of a set of experiences, and then, most critically, to peel apart our emotions and expectations, basking in what worked and adapting to what’s next. This guide offers the tools to get the most from that gift. Whether a new practitioner or seasoned faculty, reflective practice supports your development as an academic leader, making for experiences that are more meaningful for you, and for your students. Ann Buller President and CEO, Centennial College As a faculty member, this Reflective Practice Guide has numerous activities that will help you to not only reflect on teaching excellence but will assist you in developing your ideal teaching self. All the activities in this Reflective Practice Guide were so inspiring to do and reaffirmed my passion for teaching. This manual can help you as faculty to develop to your full potential.

The capacity to reflect – individually and with others – is considered valuable in teacher professional development internationally. In the field of Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language, reflective practice has been deemed to be a precious tool at the pre-service level and in the ongoing development of teachers. Despite the importance of teacher reflection, the field of Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Higher Education has tended to overlook this topic and especially its collaborative and emotional elements. This book proposes a new and practical model for engaging teachers in transformational learning through an ‘emotionalized’ version of reflection. More specifically, the Collaborative, Appreciative, Reflective Enquiry (CARE) model represents a guide for teachers who wish to engage in reflective practice alone and with others in an appreciative context. As such, this book will be invaluable to in-service language teachers and teacher educators who are committed to realizing their potential as educators and human beings through growth that only emancipatory reflection and positive emotionality can bring.
