Fostering critical reflexivity – what’s so critical about reflexivity? (Dr. Roger Kerry)

In the new MScPT curriculum, the critical thinking pillar is one of several ways in which we cultivate a teaching and learning environment that enables students to embrace complexity, to deal with uncertainty, and to develop and practice resilience and persistence.  A key component of critical thinking is critical reflexivity, which we have defined as a process that analyzes taken-for-granted aspects of physical therapy practice through examining one’s own values, beliefs, perspectives and social traditions.  In this workshop, participants will learn about the principles of critical reflexivity and how this translates into your teaching practice, whether this is in the classroom or in the clinical setting.   Participants will experience specific teaching approaches as we explore multiple strategies to motivate, teach, and support students to engage in reflexive practice.
