Reflective Practice in the Workplace focuses on an understanding of the role of reflection, and its impact on effective and anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice, to underpin service delivery in social care within diverse communities. It explores understandings and meanings relating to the concept of reflective practice and the reflective and research-minded practitioner. The module examines the working context of effective and evidence-led practice and emphasises the integration of diversity awareness in service delivery. The module explores the practical implications of management that both nurtures and is itself built on, reflective and reflexive practice. It encourages students to explore the significance of their managerial contribution to a "learning organisation", and the implications of this contribution to excellence in service delivery. It addresses the key national and local policies, directives, codes of practice, and occupational standards which define the nature and purpose of reflective practice and continuous professional development in the workplace. At this postgraduate level, the module teaching aims to equip students with the ability to critically analyse, explore and evaluate their conceptualisation of reflection and continuous professional development as encompassing their role as managers. It provides students with the theoretical knowledge and conceptual awareness to critically analyse their organisation's performance as a "learning" organisation, and their own contribution to that performance as managers. It also equips students to demonstrate the capacity to critically analyse and evaluate, on the basis of researched theory, their own and others' reflective skills reflecting the process of managing service delivery within and for diverse communities, within a learning organisation.
