The work of Donald Schon was discussed in the previous chapter. As we have seen, it has been the inspiration of much work on reflective practice in the professions and, hence, provides a prelude for looking at reflective practice in broader terms. Two points are worth noting here about some of the work that emanated from that of Schon. First, there is a tendency for interpretations of reflection-on-action to be broader than Schon's own use of the term. Second, there has been a tendency to adopt Schon's model as 'fact' and theorize on this basis rather than treat the model as speculative.
