Bridging the divide between doing and teaching reflexivity by examining how we have learnt to use reflexivity in our own areas of practice

“Critical reflective knowing is neither behavioural nor technical, not truth establishing, nor captured by a discipline. It critiques all other forms of knowledge, and in so doing, it moves beyond merely reproducing what is” (Habermas, 1978)
slide5

Key issues for teaching reflexivity

1. Strategies and techniques

2. Theories and approaches

3. Assessment and monitoring

4. Professional knowledge and development

{Trigger (App3/Date:21.07.06): A conversation with a Supervisor}

My views have changed they will again. Where will this lead? What is there after this? Have I initiated a way of thinking that is just over-stimulated reflexivity? Is introspection a way of researching? Is my agenda overly personal – emancipatory, therapeutic? Am I researching me?

Reflective note book

slide8

Being reflective involves picturing or

“visualizing oneself” (Stronach 2007)

slide11
{Trigger (App3/Date:28.08.06): Transcribing interview data}

I have such a personal view of my relationship with this study. I feel like I am one of two mirrors. I am pointed at another mirror, which is the study. From my position all I can see is me, reflected in the study... I can see where the study has come from and how my understandings have changed. But, I am in a reflection trap. I am frustrated with looking at the study and at me. It feels overly reflective and out of control. I am mentally going around in circles, scrutinizing every decision that I have made and what I will do next.
