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.
