Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Doctors, architects, lawyers and engineers are all trained in schools that emphasize technique but neglect the key element of artistry that distinguishes the true professional. Today's professional is a drudge, mechanically applying privileged knowledge to rote tasks. That is Schon's diagnosis of higher education, and as a remedy he recommends learning by doing. To teach skills of improvisation and problem-framing, he feels our universities should borrow the methods used in art studios, dance conservatories, athletics coaching, craft appenticeships and psychoanalytic training. In all these settings, a dialogue between student and coach in a low-risk atmosphere encourages creativity. Despite its academic prose, this primer by an MIT urban studies professor will enlighten students, teachers and professionals. Schon concludes the book (a sequel to The Reflective Practitioner with a description of his attempt to create a "studiolike" curriculum for MIT's city planning courses.

From Library Journal

The reflective practitioner is one who participates in a practicum in the professional school which will help him or her "acquire the kinds of artistry essential to competence in the indeterminate zones of practice." In The Reflective Practitioner (1983), Schon argued that professional schools (from engineering to public administration to teaching) were relying too heavily on scientific knowledge and technical rationality while giving little attention to "reflection-in-action." Schon now details a program of reflective practicum education in the professional schools. His book should be of value to all educators, no matter what the field. A. R. Huggins, Memphis State Univ.

Format: Paperback
The problems that face professionals (physicians, lawyers, architects) are rarely straightforward and clear. They are complex and lack "right answers." Skillful professional practice often depends less on factual knowledge than on the ability to reflect before taking action. Yet most professional schools only teach theory and how to apply it to straightforward problems. Frankly, future professionals are being poorly equipped for the real world.

In this book, Schon argues that professional education should be centered on enhancing the practitioner's ability for "reflection-in-action." Building on the concepts introduced in his first book, "The Reflective Practitioner," Schon offers a new approach to professional education in several areas.

Format: Paperback
Intense reading, appropriate for anyone involved in educating professionals for the new millenium. Schon puts forth challenges for teachers as well as students and uses some excellent examples to demonstrate his thoughts. He also presents difficulties encountered in the educational process, along with proposed solutions. Allow several days to absorb the information in this text, but definately give it a try if you are teaching at the college level!

The focus on achieving excellence in the professions is too often lost when money gets in the way. Schoen recognizes that there are areas of practice the require a higher lever of professionalism==the reflective practitioner.

The book is quite detailed about the concept about reflection in action (tacit knowledge?) but it is definitely not for the casual reader.

Schon focuses his book on "reflection in action" and "reflection on reflection in action". While reading this book, he did make me self-aware of many teaching techniques that I currently use, but very little new ground was broken here. Not really worth reading, but may be of some value to new "professionals"
