Rendering the invisible visible: Lived values that support reflective practice (2010)

Journal of Applied Research on Learning, Vol. 3, Article 11, 2010

Reflective practice can be thought of as the ability to integrate professional experience with theoretical formulations to produce solutions to problem situations. In this paper, the author charts the evolution of reflective practice in an authentic work context, and discusses the lived values that supported this evolution.

From a pool of new graduates who were affiliated with a professional association, she recruited four volunteers who were interested in gaining experience facilitating groups; had no practical experience; wanted to work in a team; and had content knowledge of facilitation. The four were all women, aged 23 to 45.

The author served as informal supervisor of the group, cultivating a mentor-like role as she followed the group for six weeks. After each facilitation experience, the group got together to share their observations, stories, and understandings of group process and their own practice of team facilitation.

Among the values that emerged were regard for others; promoting a spirit of inquiry; openness to disagreement; and honesty and transparency.
