  4. 4. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 4 What is the Reflective Practice Project? Why Now?
  5. 5. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 5 Project Partnership • Scope IT support systems • Produce vignettes for 10 topic areas • Coordinate pilot trial group • Trial training options • Create online learning platform with support resources • Create support resources to assist reflective practice • Train front-line Children’s Services team members in mentoring, coaching, and critical reflection • Provide resources for online platform • Provide content expertise to support vignettes • Evaluate the Reflective Practices Project
  6. 6. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 6 Reflective Practice Project Scoping Project Scoping: • DETE funding to deliver learning and development opportunities. 1. Analysis of C&K service results against the National Quality Standards (NQS) highlighted strong need for educator support in the areas of critical reflection. 2. Analysis of C&K’s NQS results against the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) highlighted a number of topic areas that support critical reflection. 3. This information was then mapped to the C&K Learning and Development Framework Business Context: • Fit within C&K’s Learning and Development Framework • Support educators across Queensland including, rural and remote areas • Enable connection amongst educators • Build skills in critical reflection, and address areas arising as key issues for educators such as inclusive practice, behaviour guidance, and cultural competence • Sustain beyond the funding period of December 2015

  9. 9. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 9 What is Critical Reflection? Early Years Learning Standards: “Reflective practice is a form of ongoing learning that involves engaging with questions of philosophy, ethics, and practice. Its intention is to gather information and gain insights that support, inform and enrich decision making about children’s learning. As professionals, educators examine what happens in their settings and reflect on what they might change or develop.” Ref: Guide to the National Quality Standard. October 2011 pg. 44 Building waterfalls: “..a process of thinking deeply from multiple perspectives about what is being observed in order to develop understandings.” Ref: C&K Building waterfalls: a guideline for children’s learning and for teaching in kindergarten pg. 107

  21. 21. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 21 Project Evaluation Project Inputs 1. Training materials on: (a) critical reflection, (b) theories, (c) coaching and mentoring, (d) pedagogical and content knowledge, and 2. An online professional development package consisting of 10 vignettes showcasing a specialised knowledge or practice
  22. 22. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 22 Project Evaluation Project Outputs 1. Full day face-to-face professional development sessions between QUT and C&K Children’s Services Managers 2. Two hour face-to-face/online professional development sessions with Children’s Services Managers 3. Two full day face-to-face professional development sessions with service staff
  23. 23. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 23 Project Evaluation The conceptual framework for the evaluation was underpinned by: • critical reflection, • professional development, and • transfer of learning.
  24. 24. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 24 Report Findings There was clear evidence that: a) participants were satisfied with the professional development experiences provided in the project, b) the professional development was relevant to their work, c) the professional development informed their work in new ways, d) the time spent undertaking the professional development was well spent, and e) the sessions provided participants with knowledge and skills to support colleagues working with the vignettes.
  25. 25. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 25 Report Findings There was compelling evidence that, as a result of the project, participants: a) had a better understanding of their own beliefs and perspectives, and b) had changed some of their everyday practices. Specific gains in critical reflection, as a learned skill, were: (a) greater self-awareness, (b) elaboration in thinking differently and appreciating others’ perspectives, and (c) reconstructing or revising existing understandings and reaching new conclusions.
  26. 26. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 26 Report Findings There was strong evidence that participants learned about new theories and saw the value of these theories in helping them to understand their everyday practice. Critical theories and post-structuralist theories (included in the Early Years Learning Framework) were identified as new to respondents, and the theories the respondents most wanted to learn more about. These were also the least accessible to educators.
  27. 27. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 27 Report Findings Of most value to respondents in relation to the coaching and mentoring they received was the opportunity to connect directly with others (face-to-face) and to work with the QUT academics who modelled critical reflection on the vignettes. Mentoring was found to support participants to extend their thinking and practice, and participants felt empowered to make changes in practice due to mentoring support. A significant number of respondents indicated they would be better able to mentor others on the vignette topics in future, in light of the mentoring they received.
  28. 28. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 28 Report Findings Pedagogical and content knowledge within the vignettes and support materials helped participants to deepen their understanding of the 10 topic areas: Literacy physical wellbeing numeracy emotional resilience inclusive practices cultural competency behaviour guidance leadership information technology modern families
  29. 29. Welcome to C&K V1.0 2015 © This document is the property of C&KPage 29 Report Findings There was clear evidence that the project provided participants with valuable opportunities: a) to show leadership, b) to develop a sense of mission, c) to enable staff to think and learn in new and stimulating ways, and d) to provide an environment conducive to exploring individual learning needs.
