UFHRD conference June 09 in Newcastle


Great conference – good standard of papers and some interesting side conversations.
My paper asked questions such as: Can educational institutions justify the hyperbole about promoting reflective practice as a performance improvement tool? and Do talking about reflection and assessing reflective practice belong more comfortably in HE and professional CPD than in the workplace?
I had searched online and publisher databases for relevant journal articles from 2003-9. Relatively little in the management literature which really helps practitioners cope with deadlines and high pressure working and still make the most of reflective practice. Much more evident in healthcare professions where supervision and reflective practice are more visibly encouraged. Have to turn this into a paper soon.
