In contemporary debate appeals to go beyond reflective practice in professional development have been made due to the ‘proceduralization’ this has experienced in many educational contexts and to the changing scenarios which could render it out-of-date. The paper engages with this question by arguing that we need a reconstruction of reflective practice rather than its overcoming. In particular, focusing on Donald Schön’s model, this present contribution insists on its permanent value but it also highlights how the constructivist framework into which Schön situated his approach should be revised. In this perspective it is shown, on the one hand, how reading the educational experience ongoing in the reflective practicum only in terms of learning (by excluding any ‘teaching’ dimension) could be misleading; on the other, by mobilising the Deweyan notion of qualitative thought and the Heideggerian idea of Verstehen, it is pointed out how a ‘realistic’ (as opposed to constructivist) dimension is necessary to reflective practice, also in order to fully valorise its embodied character.
