Learning Objectives

The course aims to affirm the need to place pedagogical reflection today at the centre and hence the exercise of reflective thinking in professional contexts.  

The construct of good practice, used in educational contexts, will also be addressed in the light of the same theme, for a critical analysis from a pedagogical point of view.

In particular, the course aims to promote:

Knowledge of the theoretical and historical evolution of reflexive thinking
Knowledge of devices useful for the formation of reflexive thinking in the professional field in the perspective of lifelong learning
The deepening of teachers' reflective thinking 
The ability to problematise the use of the construct of good practice in education
The study of requirements and guiding criteria for the definition and implementation of good practices
