Respecting teachers’ professionalism involves recognizing their potential to reflect on who they are and on what they do. The development of a reflective capacity can enable teachers to seek answers to their questions and to deliberately think about what occurs in the classroom. This plenary examines how teachers can harness the power of reflection in order to develop their beliefs and practices and to position themselves as critical evaluators of professional identity and classroom events.
