Reflexivity is defined and then explored as a meta-methodology for research as well as a means to stimulate professional development using reflection as a platform. Reflexivity is argued to be a deeper and broader dimension of reflection. A model of reflection, based on critical theory, is introduced to assist with the transition from reflection to reflexivity as the categories of the reflective model provide the foundation for the transition. Solutions are then outlined for the various challenges to reflexivity. A preliminary framework for undertaking reflexivity is introduced in an effort to guide novices in this ever-more necessary adjunct to research and professional development.
