Reflection and reflexivity are two meta-cognitive processes that we constantly need to exercise in order to guarantee an effective and healthy professional and also emotional growth. Unless you take a pause and think deeply about what you are doing and how you are doing it, you will never get to learn about your weaknesses and strengths. You won’t be able to stop navel-gazing and see the whole picture from an onlooker perspective.
As a teacher, there are several ways and strategies to employ to cultivate a reflective mindset and enhance your self-evaluative practices. Some of these strategies are beautifully captured in the visual below created by Mia MacMeekin from Anethicalisland. We invite you to go through them and share with us what you think of this work. Enjoy
