Have you ever been curious about critical reflection or wondered what it was? Critical reflection is a process designed to promote the examination and interpretation of experience and the promotion of cognitive learning. It requires us to consider our practices, methods and selves. Research has shown how deliberate and critical reflection on teaching practices contributes to excellence in teaching, and improved educational outcomes for students. Critically reflective teaching practices encourage teaching librarians to regularly evaluate our approaches to teaching and learning and provides a place to improve and evaluate our practice. Through a deep examination of how our personal assumptions, values, beliefs, and biases may affect decisions we make inside, and outside, the classroom, critical reflection involves teachers making observations, asking questions, and putting facts, ideas, and experiences together to derive new meaning. Becoming a critically reflective teacher will allow you the opportunity to improve your teaching and promotes a deeper understanding of teaching and learning. This session will allow participants to practice hunting assumptions, spend time engaging in critically reflective practices through looking at ourselves, our colleagues and our students, and provide you with an opportunity to get on the road to being a critically reflective teacher.
