The scope of the environmental crisis currently facing the planet presents humanity with enormous challenges, not least of which is challenging long-held assumptions about our relationship with the non-human world. Transformative approaches to professional education, with a focus on critical reflection, provide examples of ways in which an ecological consciousness can be facilitated. Drawing on examples from educational practice in Architecture and Social Work, the potential for critical reflection to bring about attitudinal change is explored through engagement with a number of specific reflective tools which can be employed in teaching practice and which are transferable into many other disciplines.
