Using Reflection to Identify Teacher Development Needs - Within this assignment I will start with a brief outline of what reflection is and propose a rationale for engaging in reflection. I will then identify three key themes that featured in my reflective journal and explore these using theoretical models and critical analysis in relation to the development of my professional practice throughout the course and as a trainee teacher. I will then conclude with a summary of my development and identify future professional development needs. “Reflective practice is understood as the process of learning through and from experience towards gaining new insights of self and/or practice” (Boud et al 1985; Boyd and Fales, 1983; Mezirow, 1981, Jarvis, 1992)....   [tags: Teacher Education, Teaching Philosophy]

Critical Reflection of and Experience with a Patient with Congenital Heart Disease - ... One needs to be aware of the mistake, in order to reflect on it, understand it and rectify it. Mistakes can indicate a gap in knowledge (Popper, 1972), as was the case here. I have very little experience of caring for patients with ACHD. In the past their lifespans were shorter, and I had limited contact with them. Advances in surgical procedures have resulted in patients living longer (Gatzoulis and Webb, 2011). A new sub-speciality has now been created within cardiology, resulting in nurses caring for ACHD patients without the required knowledge and experience....   [tags: nursing, emotion, appointment] 2227 words

Art as a Reflection of Social Tre - Art as a Reflection of Social Trends Art is something which can be analyzed to give deeper insight as to the common values and beliefs shared by the members of a certain society. Regardless of the place of origin or the time period of a form of art, it will always be a reflection of the social structure in which it's creator/s lived. However, the way the artist perceives the culture common to his time period is very relative.

Reflection of a Homily by Gregory the Great - REFLECTION ON A HOMILY BY GREGORY THE GREAT In Gregory’s homily it seems the congregation has trouble understanding the command of our Lord to love as He has. This entails loving even our enemies as Christ has. Yet, how do we love those who harm us. To often we believe that any harm to us demands a distorted form of justice. In other words, to give to them as we got. However, this is not the love of Christ, this is not justice, this is vengeance. So how do we love our enemies as He does. First, we must learn to seriously understand what it is to love those in family and community....   [tags: essays research papers] 593 words

The Reflection of Victorian Britain in Literature - The Reflection of Victorian Britain in Literature Queen Victoria reigned in Britain between 1937-1901.

Reflection on a Critical Incident - The reason for this essay is to reflect on a critical incident experience during my six week placement as a student nurse on an orthopedic ward. To explore an event as a critical incident is a value judgment, and the basis of that judgment is the significance attached to the meaning of the incident. Critical incidents are created or produced by the way we look at a situation. Tripp (1993) The incident chosen has made an impact on me due to the fact the side effects of surgery can be very critical to a patient’s life, as would be demonstrated in the critical incident chosen (D.V.T)....   [tags: Nursing Reflective Practice, 2015]

Reflection on How to Make the Most of Working in Collaboration with Others - In Lawrence’ (2013, p.195) point of view: “In the management classroom, theories on reflection and experiential learning clearly influence the use of personal, reflective writing exercises. They are used to illustrate course concepts and help students take charge of their own educational experience (and, therefore, practice making meaning for them).” Therefore, through reflection, we can make connections and examine our learning processes. When I started to learn this module, I found it includes lectures and seminars to examine the theory and practice of relevant areas through group cooperation and individuals work....   [tags: management education]

The Discipline of Chinese Painting: An Internal Reflection of Life & Art - When one comes into contact with a Chinese painting, the style is almost instantly recognizable. The attention to detail, craftsmanship, and vast depictions of elaborate landscapes appear to pay homage to mother earth in an attempt to reach a state of eternal balance with nature and life. Before this equilibrium could be achieved, one must attain internal discipline. This was required before one began mastering their brushwork in Chinese culture. In Mai Mai Sze’s “The Way of Chinese Painting,” 1959, New York: Vintage Books, Random House, Sze discusses the philosophy known as Daoism/Tao, or “the way.” Before one became a skilled painter, one trained in the personal disciplines of poetry, art,...   [tags: Art ]

Or have you ever felt a time when you wanted to express how you feel but instead, you bit your tongue to stop your comments from portraying you in a negative light, or that your truth will cause the people, the ones that matters, to be in a whole lot of hurt. This was the case of Franz Kafka; his inability to physically express his opinions to his family in reality, lead him to intellectually pursue his thoughts and relationship into the imaginary, his writings, as disp...   [tags: biographical and literary analysis]
