Researcher development framework

The Researcher Development Framework (RDF) is a national framework developed for researchers, which aims to help you understand the knowledge, behaviours and attitudes expected of effective and highly skilled researchers.

These video case studies from academic staff and research students at the University of Edinburgh give some insight into the support that PhD students, researchers and senior academic staff have found useful when progressing their academic career.  You may find it useful to view them to further your understanding of what support you could helpfully provide when you are supervising PhD students or managing research staff.
