The aim of this study is to advance knowledge and understanding about graduate research on reflective practices carried out in the field of English language teacher education in Turkey. Altogether the findings from 27 graduate theses were included in the final analysis. Seven themes emerged to guide educational stakeholders and future researchers on the further development of reflective practices in teacher education. This research on implications suggests both a long-term, collaborative, systematic and research-informed teacher education that develops teachers' understanding of reflective teaching, and also a longitudinal, repetitive and evidence-based research base to develop better understanding about reflective practices.
