The Unconscious Patient (Sense of Smell), dated at around 1624-25, is part of Rembrandt's series depicting the five senses. It shows a woman holding a handkerchief, presumably containing smelling salts, under the nose of a young man who has fainted after a surgeon has performed a blood-letting.

Reading: Doing reflective practice - a data-led way forward

Abstract

This article makes the case for an approach to reflective practice (RP) that is both evidence-based and data-led. We argue that, while RP within the field of TESOL enjoys a relatively high level of acceptance and status (perhaps even an orthodoxy), it has little corresponding knowledge base that demonstrates how RP ‘gets done’. We propose a need for more concrete descriptions of RP in order for teachers and teacher educators to fully engage with its possibilities, and in order to establish a knowledge base for promoting and supporting research by and for practitioners. In this article, we focus on the approaches that might be adopted to promote data-led and evidence-based reflection. Such a data-led approach would encourage the use of professional data, alongside appropriate tools (presented below) as a means of aiding and promoting practitioner reflection. In the first part of the article, we briefly outline what we consider to be some of the main challenges facing RP; in the second, we put forward a number of tools and procedures for enhancing RP and making it collaborative, data-led, and evidence-based.

Walsh and Mann write:

We believe that there is a need for more emphasis on:
■ data in helping to make RP more concrete so that we can see how reflection ‘gets done’ in practice;
■ reflective tools that produce data that might act as evidence for practitioner reflection.

This central challenge can be broken down into four issues that need to be addressed, namely, that RP is:

■ insufficiently data-led;
■ heavily focused on the individual at the expense of collaborative options;
■ dominated by written forms of reflection;
■ lacking in detail about the nature and purposes of reflective tools (p.352).

The cartoon below is one [ http://xkcd.com/435/ ] of many amusing and creative comic sketches on xkcd - A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. The web has produced many variations on this particular theme, this example I came across on twitter.

While Hodges' model appears to support pigeon-holing, categorising things including knowledge this is not the case. The model seeks to encourage context-related reflection and assuring an integrated and holistic perspective.

Reading: Design of a Community-Engaged Health Informatics Platform with an Architecture of Participation

Abstract

Community-engaged health informatics (CEHI) applies information technology and participatory approaches to improve the health of communities. Our objective was to translate the concept of CEHI into a usable and replicable informatics platform that will facilitate community-engaged practice and research. The setting is a diverse urban neighborhood in New York City. The methods included community asset mapping, stakeholder interviews, logic modeling, analysis of affordances in open-source tools, elicitation of use cases and requirements, and a survey of early adopters. Based on synthesis of data collected, GetHealthyHeigths.org (GHH) was developed using opensource LAMP stack and Drupal content management software. Drupal’s organic groups module was used for novel participatory functionality, along with detailed user roles and permissions. Future work includes evaluation of GHH and its impact on agency and service networks. We plan to expand GHH with additional functionality to further support CEHI by combining informatics solutions with community engagement to improve health.

"Scope Resolution Operator (::) 
The Scope Resolution Operator (also called Paamayim Nekudotayim) or in simpler terms, the double colon, is a token that allows access to static, constant, and overridden properties or methods of a class.
When referencing these items from outside the class definition, use the name of the class.
As of PHP 5.3.0, it's possible to reference the class using a variable. The variable's value can not be a keyword (e.g. self, parent and static). 
Paamayim Nekudotayim would, at first, seem like a strange choice for naming a double-colon. However, while writing the Zend Engine 0.5 (which powers PHP 3), that's what the Zend team decided to call it. It actually does mean double-colon - in Hebrew!"
