Reflection is a practice that helps instruction librarians and coordinators focus on various aspects of their teaching in order to grow and improve as teachers. This presentation will begin by defining reflection and reflexivity while describing when, how and why it is used, as well as outlining benefits, challenges and examples of the practice.
