Critical Reflections

Fridays lecture focused on Critical Reflections.

Critical reflection occurs when we analyse and challenge the validity of our presuppositions and assess
the appropriateness of our knowledge, understanding and beliefs given our present contexts
(Mezirow, 1990).

The lecture stated: Critical Reflection is a various circle. Each time you do something ask yourself:

  • How successful was it?
  • (If it didn’t) Why didn’t it turn out the way you thought?
  • How do you avoid the mistake next time?

To summarise, the lecture explain what critical reflection is and why it is important. It identifies different ways of thinking critically and analytically, and how doing this will help you understand why things may need to be improved and how it can be improved. It is important to find a balance between describing and analysing, which for me is something that I struggle with. This is something that the lecture and having the blog has and will continue to help me with, as it forces me to critically reflect on the different projects and situations and actually learn from them.
