Reflective practice has been in use in the professional world for years and is most commonly used in teaching and higher learning (Lampert, L, n.d.). Reflective practice means looking at past experiences and trying to analyse how to learn from what has occurred. It is a method of self-evaluation and is a way of improving performance in professional tasks. By reflecting on how you can improve yourself you are constantly learning and growing as a professional.
