Abstract
Recent changes and challenges that have been faced in health system and higher education have ended by the emerging of ?outcome-based? and ?process-oriented? educational approaches. During this period, both in health and education, ?individual differences?, ?contextuality? and ?complexity? have also come into prominence as three significant concepts. Regarding the outcome-based education, learning and assessment activities are developed and implemented to gain predetermined competencies. When we consider ?process-oriented approach?, we need to put the ongoing development by means of reflective practice and thinking (reflection on/in) to the center of the learning process. In this context, learning and assessment in the clinical settings are mainly regarded as reflective and transcative processes, and a number of recently developed methods are used, such as work-based learning and assessment methods, reflection sessions and critical incidents sessions. In the reflective and transactive learning, two main steps, (1) doing/experiencing not only by knowing, but also by sensing the professional/ethical values, and (2) reflection on the experience, continue on a circular manner by enriching one another. In order to construct such a learning environment, following three fundamental conditions must be guaranteed: (a) creating the optimal emotional and social climate (a challenging, but non-threatening, and confirmative learning environment with complex social interactions); (b) offering optimal learning opportunities to the learners by providing complex, realistic experience with reflection on it and presenting graded support and guidance; (c) creating optimal ways for continuous active processing of ongoing changes and experiences to construct, elaborate and consolidate ?mental models/patterns?.
