Bringing the EYLF V2.0 to Life: Critical Reflection and Ongoing Professional Learning in Practice

Nesa Accredited PD

In the EYLF V2.0, critical reflection has been strengthened to include planning for ongoing professional learning for educators. This session will look at the definitions provided in EYLF V2.0 and explore the key points educators need to know about the distinction between reflection and critical reflection.

  • The aim of this session is to help educators to focus on critical reflection and to use it as an embedded practice to drive continuous quality improvement in their service and create professional learning communities.
  • We will consider what critical reflection actually is and the role it plays in informing plans for professional learning and practice change.
  • You will discover strategies that support educators to question established practices, engage with theories and action research, and think about why they work in particular ways.
