Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Reflective practice is acknowledged to be a characteristic of all professions. There are, however, many theoretical perceptions and definitions of what it is and so it is not surprising that professions interpret its meaning in different ways. This chapter first explores the concept and its various manifestations before examining its role in the training of professional teachers.
