Reflection on an experience has been found to improve practice and therefore it is included in the inter-professional training programmes of health the professions. It improves professional expertise because it allows learning from experience. Through reflective practice the conventional way of understanding and performing a particular duty could also be given a new sense. Reflection is a way of examining practice through series of critical and creative thinking which allows one to comprehend the reasons of some actions during practice and make a move to either improve on a positive situation or correct some negative actions. This paper is a descriptive narration of a reflection on action after a piece of teaching which formed part of a fieldwork education activity.
