DOI: 10.1558/equinox.37267


This chapter provides a theoretical introduction to the notion of reflective practice, its origin, how it has been defined in the literature, various evidence-based perspectives on how effective it is, and its associated pros and cons. This discussion is embedded in the context of the practicum component of ELT education programmes with a focus on novice teachers.
