  1. Health Sciences and Practice Subject Centre Reflective Practice Special Interest Group 9th February 2009

  2. Teaching Reflexivity Elizabeth Smith

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

  4. “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)

  5. Key issues for teaching reflexivity 1. Strategies and techniques 2. Theories and approaches 3. Assessment and monitoring 4. Professional knowledge and development

  6. My learning about reflexivity

  7. {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

  8. Being reflective involves picturing or “visualizing oneself” (Stronach 2007)

  9. Reflective tools

  10. Reflecting on our performance “our novel selves” and “our signature” (Stronach 2007)

  11. {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.

  12. Limitations of reflexivity • Self-indulgence (Finlay 2002) • Difficulties of reflection (Seale 1999) • Paralysis (Weick 1999)

  13. Reflexivity involves “thinking about the conditions for what one is doing and the affects” (Steier 1991)

  14. M. Foucault Oedipal effect “Research does not take place in a neutral, apolitical, ideology-free space. Nor is an autonomous, value-free researcher responsible for it” (Alvesson and Sköldberg 2000) Episteme Disciplines Discourse

  15. Structured Reflection(Smith 2008) Political and social influences Theoretical and epistemological positions Interpretive Repertoire Presence - position Self-critical reflexivity Interpersonal reflexivity Contextual reflexivity Critical reflexivity Reflective themes

  16. “Reflexivity offers critical validation through structured and ongoing attention to personal, interpersonal and contextual factors influencing what is said and done, or not said and done” (Smith 2008)

  17. Key questions for teaching reflexivity • 1. Strategies and techniques • Reflective tools • Pedagogy of reflexivity • 2. Theories and approaches • Purposes and uses of reflexivity • Support for position of critical attitude • 3.
