    Hi all,

    My brain is going to explode and I just wondered if anyone knew the answer to my question?

    After trawling the internet double-checking if any newer editions had come out of the books I have been referencing in my essay, I have found 2 references for the Gibbs reflective cycle. One is the original 1988 one, that lots of people have quoted and are happy with, but there is now 'talk' on the net about a 1998 reference, with a slightly different title:

    Gibbs, G., 1998. Learning by Doing: A Guide to Teaching and Learning. London: FEU

    I have googled this book and I cannot find it as a legitimate entry (e.g. to buy!). I don't know if it exists and what to put down as my reference. I know that the 1988 is genuine, but there is the nagging thought in the back of my head about the possibility of it not being the most recent, therefore potentially losing marks.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi
    The reference I use is:
    Gibbs, G. (1988) Learning by Doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods. Oxford: Oxford Polytechnic Further Education Unit.
    Hope that helps :)

    The above is correct- and it is 1988 not 1998 :)

    It's fine to use a reference that old if it is a seminal pieceof work (which this one is, as it's one of the original models of reflection).

    It's my fave- much better than the others IMO and the one that I used most frequently when training.

    It's likely a typo (and I think I made that typo in one of my essays and still passed - it was that or I put 1888, I know I typed it wrong)

    There is a more recent book that can be used to reference Gibbs but I'm not helping much as I can't remember it! But yeah as already said it is definitely okay to use 1988 xx
