Part 1
Learning and Reflection

Part I explores philosophies, theories and models of learning, including ideas about reflection, reflective practice and reflective learning.

In Chapter 1 we seek to explain our purpose in writing this book and give our rationale which includes our own journeys in coming to the writing of this book. Chapter 2 addresses some of the philosophies of learning which underpin teaching practice, sometimes implicitly embedded in practice. Our own philosophy is offered based on social constructivism and social activity theory and we discuss matters of power, discourse, habitus and disposition in learning. Chapter 3 discusses a range of learning theories from traditional ideas to progressive approaches which challenge traditionalism, including levels, orientations and single/double loop learning. Chapter 4 examines reflection and its connection with dialogue, particularly reflective dialogue. Chapter 5 offers an in-depth exploration of reflective practice, self reflection and dialogue as well as a model showing levels of reflection which forms the basis of a possible assessment method.
