Innovative micro-teaching to enhance student teaching/learning is increasingly using the concept of Action Research. In action research, the particular focus is on the subject of the research also being a learner from the research outcome. The Kemmis Model (Cyclical Model of Action Research) introduced the notion that ‘all teachers are learners’ and ‘all learners can be teachers’. Action research emphasizes the notion of self-observation and self-reflection. However, observation and self-reflection are challenging methods that value the personal nature of learning. The outcome of this micro teaching action research exercise demonstrates the complexity of self-perception and self-learning. It highlights that the action reflection methodology has to be very aware of complexity in learning. When that complexity is recognized and valued then action research can be an inclusive research process that encourages reflection as praxis. This experiment also suggests that group involvement in person reflection can increase complexity. The outcome of this experience shows that the recording of presentations for self-reflection can encourage deeper levels of learning, and can enhance learning, particularly in higher education.
