Reflective practice is a defining characteristic of professional work and a formal requirement for professional credentials in our own and other fields, supporting evidence-based practice and professional development. Reflection is associated with experiential learning and especially with teacher education. It is prominent in contemporary models of information literacy, and has been promoted as a core proficiency for instruction librarians; it is also an essential competence for carrying out research and engaging in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The terminology of the field is problematic, with concepts often defined in contradictory ways, and multiple models and typologies on offer, making it hard for practitioners to get started. The importance of work context has generated domain-specific handbooks, notably for the caring professions, but library literature typically references models from other fields, or offers only rudimentary guidance; SEA-change model is a rare example of a model developed to support management learning and information literacy assessment in LIS, but it has only been tested with students. Along with different interpretations of the concept, there is an array of techniques and tools for individual and collective use; practitioners are encouraged to experiment with different methods to find an approach that suits their personal style.
