Topic 1: Becoming a Reflective Practitioner
May 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm HKT
This session will focus on providing background concepts important to understanding the importance of reflective practice in clinical education. Studies from varied disciplines (e.g., nursing, counseling, physical therapy) will be incorporated to provide the audience with a broader base of research than that available in speech pathology and audiology fields. Models of reflective practice and its role in developing critical thinking skills by clinical students will be discussed. Varied methods/activities commonly used to implement reflective practice into clinical education will be discussed including, for example, use of self-evaluation in clinical teaching, portfolio development, and journal reflections.
