This course is intended as an introduction for anyone interested in developing a reflective practice habit in support of their professional and personal development. It does not require any particular previous experience.
Where an individual is required to demonstrate their use of it in their profession we will consider how they can match those requirements.
We anticipate that most participants will be particularly focused on the use of this approach in their work life, though some others may wish to concentrate on their personal.
It will be of benefit to professionals in the fields of teaching, medicine, law, architecture, health, sports, counselling, coaching, politics, business, leadership, and management. It may also be of interest to artists of various kinds, designers, and photographers for whom critical analysis in the development of their work is key.
By its nature, reflective practice calls for self-exploration, honesty, and an openness to being challenged personally. Participants will be expected to support each other in this process too.
Most of the Department's weekly classes have 10 or 20 CATS points assigned to them. 10 CATS points at FHEQ Level 4 usually consist of ten 2-hour sessions. 20 CATS points at FHEQ Level 4 usually consist of twenty 2-hour sessions. It is expected that, for every 2 hours of tuition you are given, you will engage in eight hours of private study.
