About the workshop
Aimed at tertiary educators across a wide range of teaching environments, this half-day workshop examines the purpose, benefits, methods and skills of reflective practice. The facilitator, Peta Joyce, introduces specific models of reflective practice; assisting participants to identify how they can use or adapt these for their work in ways that benefit their learners. With nearly 30 years teaching experience (including designing and facilitating professional development in a variety of contexts – university, community education and industry), Peta has developed a workshop where participants experience reflective practice for themselves, explore key concepts (such as journalling, reflective questioning and peer group feedback) and summarise their learning, while identifying examples of how they might put reflective practice into action within their own teaching context.
The workshop expands on the Ako Aotearoa-funded project A professional development/support model for all teachers led by Michelle Clark. It also links to other Ako Aotearoa work in the area, including A Tertiary Practitioner’s Guide to Collecting Evidence of Learner Benefit by Anne Alkema, from which our PD workshop The process of collecting evidence of learner benefit has been developed.
These workshops are part of Ako Aotearoa’s Professional Development Programme – an initiative to bring high quality, evidence-based and affordable professional development to educators and managers across New Zealand’s diverse tertiary education sector.
