Reflexivity and Autonomous Training: Realities, Reflection and Innovation

Réflexivité et formation autonomisante : état des lieux, réflexion et innovation

Published on Thursday, January 12, 2023 by Lucie Choupaut

Summary

La pandémie a révélé la précarité de plusieurs systèmes, notamment celui de l’éducation et de la formation. Du jour au lendemain, enseignants et apprenants avaient à s’acclimater aux technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) et aux nouveaux canaux pour enseigner et apprendre. N’ayant pas été formés à l’apprentissage autogéré, les apprenants se sentaient en déréliction ; les enseignants, eux, ne faisant pas travailler leurs publics en « lâcher-prise » et étant habitués à construire les savoirs dans l’interaction, peinaient à réajuster leur planification des cours. Ce colloque pluridisciplinaire se veut l’occasion d’élucider et d’approfondir certains concepts gravitant autour de la réflexivité dans différents domaines. Il aspire à mettre en lumière des expériences et/ou des recherches qui visent l’étude de la réflexivité dans la formation du sujet (jeune ou adulte) autonome.

Argument

The pandemic revealed the precariousness of several systems; education and training are no exception. Teachers and learners had to adapt to ICT tools and the new teaching and learning platforms. However, learners felt overlooked since they were not acquainted with such highly autonomous learning, whereas teachers struggled to customize their materials and instruction to meet the demands and needs of remote/distance learning.

In fact, many practitioners, in various fields, prioritize the teaching of their discipline/courses to the training of “learning to learn” and “reflexivity”. They themselves rarely, if ever, objectify their didactic-pedagogical choices. Similarly, learners feel more secure in the role of the trainee-receiver than in the empowering role of trainee-reflector. Nevertheless, the current socialization constraints and the demands of the twenty first century evoke the need for the implementation of cognitive skills capable of shaping autonomous individuals (practitioner and learner).

Far from traditional training models, Vacher (2013) points out that "practice is no longer an object to be corrected by theory […] but to be apprehended by reflection" (p. 3). As a result, an essential paradigm in professionalization is that of the "reflective practitioner" (Schön, 1983). The training of this reflective practitioner, in line for the epistemological leap, stands in need of establishing a progression in reflexivity training from simple reflection to meta-analysis while passing through reflection (Vacher, 2011). These three stages constitute the maturation process of reflective thinking.

The professionalization process involves reflection on contextualized and authentic practice. Training must, therefore, aim to empower the trainee/learner in the problem situations he or she may encounter during practice. It must equip them with a spirit of problematizing in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice and vice-versa. The promotion of this profile of reflective practitioner would make it possible to set up trainings privileging the teaching of autonomy-empowering strategies, the “learning” and the “learning to learn” to the disciplinary contents, because the “meta” approach is not the prerogative of the trainer.

Learners’ autonomy, which is the ultimate goal of all teaching, depends upon gearing them with strategies that permit them to act effectively in their environment. This effectiveness depends largely on the learner's reflection on his/her operational choices and their self- regulation. This becomes possible through the acquisition of metacognitive strategies.

Metacognition, which refers to knowing about knowing, is a cognitive process that aims at raising one’s awareness about the way knowledge is acquired. Metacognition also allows the learner to be autonomous and authorizes his/her entry “onto the path of culture and thus of freedom" (Grangeat, 1997, p. 155). It is mainly based on reflection on/about the intellectual processes activated in learning and "leads, progressively, to identify the mental strategies used, and to link them to the success of the task" (ibid.: 156). It must be noted that reflexivity is conscientious and liberating for both the trainee and the trainer.

Thus, this multidisciplinary conference aims to elucidate and deepen certain concepts revolving around reflexivity in different fields. It aspires to highlight experiences and/or research that aim at studying reflexivity in the training of the autonomous subject (young or adult). In order to do so, we propose a list of axes that include but are not limited to:

  • Reflexivity and professional didactics;
  • Reflexivity as a soft skill;
  • Autonomous learning;
  • Reflective teaching;
  • Professional development and training
  • The teaching-learning of metacognitive strategies;
  • Reflective writing in teaching-learning;
  • The reflective oral in teaching-learning;
  • The reflective act in formative assessment;
  • Innovative practices at the service of reflexivity;
  • Reflexivity in Education 0;
  • Reflexivity and training engineering;
  • Reflexivity and professional training;
  • Management and reflexivity;
  • Reflexivity and professional action;
  • Critical digital pedagogy;
  • Rethinking pedagogy;
  • Adult learning and training;
  • Flipped classroom/flipped classroom and reflexivity;
  • Reflexivity and the act of writing.
