A webinar on 'Developing Reflective Writing using Patchwork Texts'

Dr Ayona Silva Fletcher will give an AMEE webinar on 'Developing Reflective Writing using Patchwork Texts' on Tuesday 10th March at 11am and again at 4pm.

Reflection is an essential component of teacher-development programs, and reliable, valid methods to teach, assess, and evaluate reflection are critical. Developing reflective practitioners is not an easy task. Many struggle to identify the difference between thinking and purposeful reflection. Academic reflection is not a random thought process but, as defined by Dewey, an ‘active, persistent, and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further conclusions to which it tends.’

Participants from science-based disciplines find reflection particularly difficult, considering the process of reflection to be subjective and concluding that it is an inappropriate method through which to contest knowledge. The patchwork-text approach is a narrative process that is predominantly focused on the personal development of the individual.

Webinars are free to AMEE/MedEdWorld Members, non-members are asked to pay a one off fee of £25.00 per webinar.  For more information please visit www.AMEE.org
