The writing of this chapter was supported by the Economic and Social Research Council through MODE, a node of the National Centre for Research Methods (2011-2014, RES-576-25-0027). The research it draws on is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (RES-576-25-0027 and RES-062-23-3219), the London Deanery (Simulation and Technology-Enhanced Learning Initiative), and the Royal College of Surgeons of England (Alex's fellowship). Needless to say that I am deeply grateful to Alex Cope and Roger Kneebone for our fruitful partnerships. I would also like to thank the editors of this volume for their helpful comments on earlier versions of the chapter
