Description

This module explains how critical reflection forms a crucial part of professional practice in early childhood education and care, and provides a model and suggestions for how to make critical reflection a positive part of everyday practice.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • how an educator’s critical reflection supports children’s learning, development and wellbeing
  • three elements integral to your success as a critical thinker: self-awareness, building relationships with others, and building knowledge in yourself and your team
  • the Circle of Change Revisited Model of Critical Thinking

Once you’ve finished the module, you’ll be able to download and save a certificate of completion.

Suitable for early childhood education and care workers at all stages of their careers. This module will take an estimated one hour to complete.

Completing Using Critical Reflection will contribute 1 hour of NESA registered PD addressing 3.6.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW. Courses completed after 17/08/2017 will be validated.
