332 2.1 The Importance of Reflective Practice Reflective Practice is the opportunity to review what has been done, what worked well and what didn't work so well. From this you can identify areas that need to change or develop so as we can constantly strive to improve our teaching practice. Reflective practice can also be applied on a personal level so as we are better able to identify what we are doing well, how we need to improve or develop and how our knowledge and current practice may benefit the team within which we are working. Reflective practice can be carried out by keeping a reflective journal to record our experiences.
