Reflective Practice for Teachers by Maura Sellars provides a deep look at reflective practice and helps readers understand how it can strengthen your teaching... Sellars’ approach assumes little prior knowledge, but her tone and style also make this informative and affirming for experienced educators. Her use of current and established research also makes this a great resource for school and district leaders who work with teachers to build reflective practice.

Maura Sellars trained initially at the Froebel Institute in London (now part of the University of Roehampton) before completing B. Ed (Hons) at the London Institute of Education. She has worked in primary schools in the UK and Australia for 28 years, teaching all the primary grades at one time or another. She gained a Dip.Ed. in Religious Education from ACU's Queensland campus before graduating from ACU (Strathfield) with M.Ed. (Research). On completion of her PhD she has focussed on investigating new and creative ways of accommodating student difference and inclusivity in the courses she presents to preservice teachers and others. She is also committed to the importance of reflective practice for teachers and students of all ages, the needs of 21st century learners and establishing strong links between theory and practice (praxis) in order to promote strong, accurate self-knowledge that supports increased personal and academic success in relation to learning outcomes. She is currently investigating numeracy as social practice and how reflective practitioners might interpret the mandatory curriculum documents in numeracy and mathematics in order to make learning in these areas more accessible to diverse groups of learners.
