  • Understanding Reflection and its Relationship with the Personal Tutor Role

    Thursday 16 June 2022, 14:00 - Thursday 16 June 2022, 15:30

    Nicola Clarke, Birmingham City University

    Reflection and reflective practice are not new concepts, but despite a wealth of literature in this area it remains an often misunderstood concept due to potential popularity of the notion that has led to an  assumed knowledge base.  Reflection is a process that when engaged with can heighten our self-awareness, lead to transformational change at both an affective and cognitive level, generate knowledge of what constitutes ‘I’ within the context of our experiences and others and empower us to be the best version of ourselves. This webinar will explore reflection; the importance for us as personal tutors to be an effective reflective practitioner, and how facilitating reflection in our personal students by engaging in reflective dialogue, can allow the understanding of self within our students that they can use to inform their experiences in university and their respective profession. Empowering our students to be the best version of themselves.
