Brookfield demonstrates a kind of transparently rarely conveyed in our sharing about becoming more effective in our teaching. In addition, all chapters have been thoroughly updated and expanded to align with today's classrooms, whether online or face-to-face, in large lecture formats or small groups. Chapter 6 outlines the critical incident questionnaire and gives a case study illustration of its use. What I love about this simple, anonymous survey is that it provides clear insight into how students experience my teaching. It earned rave reviews after its initial publication, and several friends recommended it highly to me years ago.

Houle Award for Outstanding Literature in Adult Education, he is the author of numerous books on teaching, including The Skillful Teacher(2015), Teaching for Critical Thinking(2011), and The Discussion Book(with Stephen Preskill) (2016), all from Jossey-Bass. The second edition that is being reviewed here saw the light of day in 2017, more than two decades after the first.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Targeting faculty at all levels and across disciplines, this personal guide explores how practicing critical reflection can help align faculty with desired student outcomes, to view their practice from new perspectives, and engage learners by using varied teaching formats. All chapters have been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect today's classroom formats, whether online or face-to-face, or in large lectures or small groups.

Assumptions guide practice and only when we base our actions on accurate assumptions will we achieve the results we want. At the very point that I thought I was failing, numerous students gave feedback that suggested the opposite.

Having someone who conveys such similar challenges as my own was quite helpful, both in terms of knowing that my concerns are common, but also by providing practical ways to reflect in different ways and take actions to develop my teaching even further. This is the second Brookfield book that I have read, after starting with his revised edition of The Skillful Teacher (2015). One particular dimension of this book that has served me well as a teacher is the Critical Incident Questionnaire (CIQ). Chapter 5 describes how to use learning journals, and other techniques to see through students' eyes.

I have seen Stephen Brookfield in conferences and he is a brave educator, open to tackle some of the issues most of us would rather not. Chapter 4 continues the discussion of the autobiographies and describes a number of practical approaches for doing autobiographical reflection. In his own personal voice Stephen Brookfield draws from over 45 years of experience to illustrate the clear benefits of critical reflection.All chapters have been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect today’s classroom formats, whether online or face-to-face, or in large ­lectures or small groups. Stephen Brookfield—the award-wining educator and bestselling author—explains how to confront the contradictions involved in creating democratic classrooms by using critical reflection as a tool for ongoing personal and professional development. Critical reflection can also aid in understanding and managing classroom power dynamics, modeling critical thinking for students, as well as working with the complexities of diverse classrooms. Chapter 1 lays out the concept of reflection in general terms and then focuses on explaining what is distinctive about critical reflection. Most appealing is Brookfield's openness to how the various techniques may be individually tailored by educators to fit unique situations.

Chapter 3 establishes the importance for critical reflection of teachers analyzing their own autobiographies as learners. Filled with illustrative examples from a wide variety of classroom settings, the volume explores in detail what critical reflection is and why it is so vital for becoming a skillful teacher.Educators with the courage to challenge their own assumptions in an effort to improve learning are the invaluable role models our students need.
