We looked at what we could mean by Practice:
peeling it away from the background noise of your training, what you have had to do because xyz, what other people have told you are rather than what you see your direction as, the restrictions of work or organizations,....
We talked about how we are seeing your practice as fluid... changing as you find yourself in different situations, over time etc...
We looked at elements that contribute to what we are calling your practice - what you have learnt since formal training, what is 'self' learnt, or gleaned on the job/in action.
What are discourses in your field that around about things you value or contribute to shaping your practice.
We made connections between understanding your own learning style - as part of understanding and recognizing what you have learnt (AOLs) and also as a way to support your further learning now and across your professional career.
We made connections between using the Three lens in the handbook to help notice and give form to your practice. and also as a way to talk about it i.e. talk about your practice through reflecting on it, looking at what your networks are, seeing how you communicate and present it and yourself.
We said practice is not just the title of the job you do, it is deeper including what you value...
We saw how the 'diagram' maps out your practice, values, landscape, objects , discourses. How it might be a starting point to the essay rather than the other way around.
We made lots of connections across all the elements of the Module ...please look at the comments below to see some connections people in the conversations made.
All this is critical thinking - critically thinking about your context, your construct of what you do.
