Higher Education in Kenya faces numerous challenges. Here, Universities have proliferated from one in 1970 to 73 in 2017. Such an increase raises pedagogical quality concerns. The Association for Faculty Enrichnment in Learning and Teaching endevours to nurture deeply reflective and transformative student learning experiences. Here we explore how the use of critical reflections facilitated 12 AFELT members learning during a two- week online curriculum design course. Through the reflction process participants examined and challenged their implict beliefs and values about their teaching. We used content analysis to investigate member's reflections. For systemic change in higher education, faculty need to become reflective practitioners.
