Promoting critical reflection through teacher’s education (EN)

RAIKOU, NATASSA; University of Patras, Greece

The objective of this paper is to study the teachers’ education at the University, through the prism of critical reflection. Considering critical reflection as a necessary qualification for professional development, we focus on a curriculum that cultivate critical thinking not only during the theoretical part of the studies (lectures, workshops etc), but in practicum too. In this area the student has the opportunity to be tested, to think and to reflect upon educational practices. During an investigation that took place in a Greek University, the need to strengthen the reflective skills of future teachers, as well as the potential benefits for their better preparation emerged.
