Overview

The course is based on the constructivist learning principle, which allows for active and interactive participation, as a result of which participants will be able to integrate new knowledge, understanding and skills into their existing repertoire. A variety of opportunities will be created for participants to engage personally and in groups about the area and its implications and impact in practical terms.

1. Teacher / LSE will be offered the opportunity to understand deeper reflective practice and to strengthen reflexive and reflective practice within themselves and those in collaboration.
2. Reflective and reflexive practice will be exposed with the aim of helping the participant educators to understand their personal identity in distinction to their professional identity. Consequently, it will help participants understand their espoused theories that influence their practices.
3. Educators will have the opportunity to understand deeper questioning skills as the tool to be critical towards their own and others practices.
4. Increased cognizance of the theoretical and practical issues of critical reflection will subsequently help participants challenge their beliefs and improve their professional practices.
5. The reflective/reflexive skills will be a powerful tool for personal professional development.
