I use it for two things:

1. renaming variables

2. chasing down the location of a definition, across module  
boundaries, especially when I am suspicious of their behavior.

In a teaching situation,

I recently proposed a drscheme contribution on the mailing list here  
concerning additional refactorings, lifting out closed definitions to  
be precise. You would use the underlying machinery for that.
