Target Audience

International School Educators; Teacher Educators


New developments in education require that we rethink how best to build links between theory and practice.


In this context, reflection is a central concept.


The Core Reflection approach, developed by Fred Korthagen and his colleagues, aims at promoting a deep and transformative kind of reflection in the coaching of students, teachers, or colleagues.


It represents a shift from a focus on problems and deficiencies toward a focus on strengths.
