Term Definition
reflection

a process of careful consideration, especially in terms of reviewing behaviour, performance, incidents. It is seen as vital for teachers in respect of improving their own professional practice, and increasingly for learners in respect of improving their learning or study skills. It needs, therefore, to be conducted in an informed way to be of real value (see pedagogy; praxis; metacognition).
