Abstract: This case study documented the critical reflective practice of an instructor in a higher education context. This reflective practice was characterized by critical analysis that examined her teaching and learning approaches. In particular, the reflections unveiled her ways of seeing the teaching and learning process, learning through sharing experiences, developing her Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), and nurturing her professional growth. Cultivating this reflective practice was possible through guided mentoring and collaboration with an instructional design team, during which the instructor was able to engage in in-depth critical reflective practices. Implications for cultivating reflective practice are discussed in light of enhancing our understanding of the complexities that teaching and learning processes encompass. Recommendations for cultivating critical reflection through mentoring and collaborating will also be shared.
