    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article examines the ideas and opinions canvassed of 40 experienced practice teachers about the concept of reflective practice. There is a focus on how they define the concept but also how they develop and assess this area with social work students. Through analysing themes from their responses a composite definition of reflective practice is suggested. Central characteristics and processes of the concept of reflective practice are identified from responses. It is suggested that this concept can be identified, developed and assessed in practice. The need for clarity of thinking about reflection by practice teachers is underlined.
