This poster updates the lessons from a collaborative learning about how the process of mapping similar teaching cases can help define the terrain and share good-practice to encourage uptake. The context mapping process gives an understanding of how we might consider all the role based learning task designs in a way that is not dependent on the particular definition such as role-play or case-study but rather focuses on a process that considers the context of the academic and finding similar good practice to be able to work with them effectively. The author worked collaboratively with the Project EnRoLE team to map a repository of cases in ways that were helpful for the team's understanding of the factors that are key to useful definitions of role-based learning. It is hoped the exercise will influence and clarify strategies for disseminating the project and the cases in ways that encourage re-usability of the learning designs for role-based learning experiences.
