Life can be frantic. We have our home lives, our relationships – catering for our own needs and others’. We have our teaching lives – often hectic and pressurised – and we find ourselves in what Marion Dadds (2001) called ‘the hurry-along’ curriculum. We remember being told in college that ‘reflection is essential for good teaching’. We probably all agree at some tacit level with that statement. And yet there seems to be no time, no space, no opportunity to do so.
In this blog we hope to provide a space for reflection.
