In 1987, Donald Schon introduced the concept of reflective practice as a critical process in refining one's specific discipline. Schon recommended reflective practice as a way to recognize the differences between an individual’s practices and those of more successful practitioners. As defined by Schon, reflective practice involves thoughtfully considering one's own experiences in applying knowledge to practice. (Schon, 1996).

Reflection-in-action this is where you reflect on your actions during an event....this isn't going well; what can I do now to improve things? This is going well; how can I maintain the momentum?
