The theoretical concept of coflection was presented for the first time to an external audience at this years EC-TEL Conference in Toledo, Spain. Michael Prilla (RUB) and Carmen Wolf (KIT) first gave a short introduction why this approach is timely according to nowadays workplace learning needs. After this, coaching and reflection were explained separate and main connection as well as differences shown. The coflection concept has three levels: process level, element level and meta-level. These were illustrated and afterwards first prototypes for collaborative reflection (within a EmployID community of practice) and peer coaching revealed. The last minutes of the presentation was about how to interlink the prototypes. For more on this check out the slides or the paper.
Questions were raised about how coflection will be implemented in practice and if peer coaching or coflection provide lower outcome in comparison to individual coaching with a professional coach.
