'This book widens the scope of reflection by not restricting it to the evaluation of teaching and learning strategies (technical level). Harrison asserts that we should use reflective practice, to critically explore people's assumptions in their teaching. This also involves reflecting on the ethical and political dimensions of educational goals...[The authors] direct teachers' attention to their many roles other than classroom teaching and expand these roles to include the contribution to the well-being and development of students' -
