Reflective Practice: A Professional Learning of English Teachers
Research on reflective practice is prevalent in school level and not so much in university level. Therefore, this research entitled Reflective Practice: A Professional Learning of English Teachers is an attempt to find out if university teachers specifically of Tribhuvan University practice reflective practice in their classrooms and to unwrap university teachers' experience on reflective practice with the help of stories. Two university teachers from Tribhuvan University, Central Department of English Education, Kirtipur, were purposefully selected. Non-random purposive sampling procedure was used to select the university and the teachers. Interview guidelines were used to collect the data and stories of the university teachers were recorded. The findings of the study showed that teachers of Tribhuvan University practice reflective practice on their own efforts which has helped them in their professional learning. They shared their reflective experiences to students or expressed through journal publication. Although the university was not found to have any programs for the teachers to practice reflective practice, these intrinsically motivated teachers have practiced it in their own ways.
