What did you do? Why with what goals? What alternatives did you consider? What would have changed in the context to make you choose an alternative? How will you know and when that you've made the right decision?The Applied Cognitive Task Analysis framework as a tool of reflective practiceAssessing the effectiveness of a mentor/mentee relationship - process vs outcomesTwo way challenge in the mentor/mentee relationship - the Zone of Uncomfortable Debate
