Using reflection to improve practice and feed continuous improvement

ReflectSeries of 2 workshops on MAR 12 & APR 16: at 9am - 2pm

This series is suitable for Emerging Leaders in Early Childhood

Instead of working with our 'blinkers on' and staying in the same old ways, explore how to use critical reflection to unpack new ideas and work towards current best practice. These two workshops will provide you with tools and skills to use critical reflection to improve your own practice, and to plan for and work towards continuous improvement.

MAR 12: Critical reflection to improve practice

This workshop explores the questions - "what exactly is critical reflection?" and "how do I use critical reflection to meet the requirements of the NQS?"

You will discuss and use:

  • a critical reflection tool to discuss and examine an issue in practice, using the process ASK, LOOK, THINK and DO.
  • multiple perspectives to gain insights, enrich decision making and identify new actions to be taken
  • insights, feedback and support networks to develop a professional development plan to continue your own professional growth

APR 16: Use a team approach for continuous improvement

Developing a team approach to improvement is vital to achieve continuous improvement. We discuss:

  • strategies to develop a positive culture focused on continuous improvement in the National Quality Standard
  • how to establish communication systems to receive feedback and consult with stakeholders
  • use the Quality Improvement Plan to identify issues and set goals for NQS Element 3.2.3 around sustainability at your centre
  • practise skills in setting SMART goals, action steps and success measures, then consider the resources and team professional development required to reach goals for improvement

Workshop series facilitator: Andrea Isitt
