ABOUT THIS ONLINE ONGOING PROGRAM
Reflection is a key professional practice that often gets set aside during times of great stress and rapid change. We know that reflection is an important part of our own growth and development cycles, especially as it relates to unlearning inequitable practices and challenging deficit mindsets. Reflection is also critical to the development of our students, which makes it imperative that we’re modeling this reflection in order to also promote it in our learning spaces. This group will engage participants on how to more intentionally participate in a deep reflective practice that speaks to their emotional and intellectual selves. Our sessions will provide the space for participants to engage directly in a range of reflective practices with application to their current experiences as teachers and leaders as well as explore ways to bring these practices into their classrooms and school sites. A strong emphasis will be placed on building community.
- Understand the importance of engaging in a deep reflective practice as educators committed to lifelong learning
- Practice a variety of reflective practices to support personal growth and professional development
- Develop skills to integrate reflective practices into classroom teaching and leadership experiences
- Build a network of other educators committed to reflective practice for ongoing support and inspiration
