Especially note the comprehensive work in Engineering (access via ‘examples’). Mechanical Engineering tutors ‘reingineered’ the RSD for Engineering contexts, producing the OPS (Optimising Problem Solving) pentagon. Use of OPS throughout second semester 2014 is featured, with explanations of OPS and lots of student engagement with the pentagon.
