PELP CPD Event: How we holistically assess: supporting students to critically reflect on their practice – 10.11.21

This event, funded by the Pan-Dorset and Wiltshire Teaching Partnership (PDWTP) was delivered by Siobhan Maclean via Zoom and was aimed at both experienced and training / newly qualified Practice Educators, and also practitioners who have undertaken a supervisor role but may not have begun Practice Educator training.

Aims of the event:

• For participants to understand and refresh their knowledge of what reflective practice / critical reflection means.

• For participants to be able to contextualise the role of critical reflection / reflective practice in the holistic assessment of social work students and more specifically in social work practice learning.

• For participants to be able to apply this knowledge – for Practice Educators and supervisors to be able to support and enable social work students to effectively reflect on their practice.

What the session included:

• Set a context of the skill of reflection as part of the holistic assessment of students.

• Set a context on what we understand critical reflection to mean – the differences between reflection, critical reflection and reflexivity.

• Contextualised the skill of reflection to the key assessment frameworks and as part of the practice educator’s holistic assessment (pre-qualifying and ASYE) Professional Capability Framework / Knowledge and Skills Statements.

• Considered ways of enabling students to reflect effectively (methods / spaces for reflection / tools to enable critical reflection).

• Explored and thought about creative ways to promote reflection and critically reflective practice with students.
