Teaching as Inquiry and Teacher Bias

A discussion with my colleagues brought a few of the following quotes to the surface and made me reflect 

“We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience.” - John Dewey

When we go through the process of Teaching as Inquiry how do we ensure we are learning from these experiences and not just taking aspects from them to confirm our existing thinking.  

A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. - William James

How do you ensure your Teaching as Inquiry cycles are robust and minimize the influence of personal bias or prejudices?

Does personal bias matter in an Inquiry Cycle?
