Reflective Practice & Reflective Writing

Models of Reflection

Models provide a framework to guide you through the steps involved in reflection.  Models can be basic, like Driscoll’s, which is a three step plan or much more detailed and structured such as Gibb’s model, which has six steps.   The models share similar characteristics such as; descriptive, analytical and critical sections and a final section that outlines a plan for the future.

Each tab in this section provides details of the model and a short video how you might use it.
