    1. Great to hear that Rebecca. Thats because it was developed by collegues in the Health Sciences- SOphie Karanicolas and Cathy Snelling, partnering with Sue Bandaranaike who is more generally interested in learning in work settings. It captures the terminology best for your context, while still holding to the overarching general idea in keeping with the RSD or more generally now MELT- for all the Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching that share a similar underlying premise.
