This book is focused on the role of reflective practice, as a source and resource for teaching and learning and research in the arts (here being Art and Design, Dance, Drama and Music). It aims to investigate the concept of reflection and its application to a range of contemporary arts education contexts for both teachers and learners. Authors investigate how and in what ways reflection is practised in arts education, and argue for the central importance of reflection within the professional arts community. The book will provide a resource for those seeking to engage in individual and collective professional development which, by its nature, involves reflecting on practice. Many of the authors are both arts educators and researchers who reflect current trends in arts education, and consider the relationships between teachers, artists and learners in and across disciplines. Through explanation and discussion of examples of practice both in and out of school, and in with a range of age phases, readers will gain insight into a variety of ways of working and ways of understanding how learning in the arts is nurtured.
