Abstract: Reflection is a useful technique for aiding and reinforcing learning. It is valuable tool in professional development and range of educational situations. Through exercising judgement and critical evaluation of personal progress the reflection process can internalise skills and criteria involved in supervision practice. Though there are diverse types of reflection activities which may be appropriate at different stages, however, reflection on personal experience is more systematic reflection. It incorporates systematic objective to reach comprehensive understanding. It is considered a higher order reflection, which may be on several events or on the results of reflection that has already occurred, and could be seen as reflection-on-action that goes well beyond the event.
