Reflective talk: making conversation a tool for learning

Watch a recording of Martyn Clarke's webinar for teacher educators, looking at reflective talk.

About the webinar

In this webinar we explore the value of reflection as a teacher educator, the ways teacher educators talk to both themselves and each other and identify the key features of those conversations which tend towards internal and collaborative reflective practice. We then analyse practical guided reflective-interaction activities for their potential uses for mentors, trainers, and teacher educators in both the staffroom and the training room. And perhaps, the café.
