Melba Sheila D’Souza, Bala Raju Nikku, Cael Field


Background and aim: There is an increased understanding of and appreciation for teachers' work from other disciplines, primarily for formulating individual plans and enhancing one's teaching based on observations and shared reflections. This article reviews how reflective practice, which is self-initiated and focused, informs the understanding and improvement of teaching practices, demonstrates interaction with students, and guides teaching experiences. This article aims to explore reflective practices that were meaningful for engaging in in-class instructional teaching practices.

Methods: A self-study methodology was used to examine the complicated relationship between teaching and learning and knowledge in action of teacher education pedagogy.

Results and discussion: As teacher, we understand the importance of problem-solving, establishing connections between relationships, and motivating students to think about missing connections or reconsidering them. Implications: The benefit of the Teaching Triangle was enhancing interdisciplinary relationships, understanding professional teaching relationships, and learning from each other without boundaries.

Conclusions: Three aspects of the interdisciplinary reflective practice that emerged were adopting philosophy and purpose-driven goals; facilitating teaching pedagogy and technology; and creating culturally safe and effective student learning environments.
