Introducing the Reflective Practice: “In Their Voices” Conversation Project

As I wrote The Guide to Reflective Practice in Conflict Resolution, I wondered whether I could include the voices and perspectives of others—not simply through quotations and citations which I employed extensively.  I wanted more depth and detail.  I wanted to include the perspectives, experiences and wisdom of others who think about and work with similar ideas and to do so in their own voices.  These are people who have added immeasurably to our profession through practice experiences, writings, teaching and research.

I considered conducting interviews and producing transcripts in an appendix. This was a wonderful though impractical idea.

That led to the idea of producing a series of video conversations broadly oriented to ideas about reflective practice including, learning from experience, applying theory to shape action, and others.  The conversations will focus on and emphasize their practices, teaching, writing and research.
