Learning and Development

Researcher Development Framework (RDF)

MORU has adopted the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) as the  professional development tool to structure the post-graduate training program. The RDF was developed by Vitae, to help researchers at all stages of their careers to understand the knowledge, attributes and skills required to succeed as a professional researcher in Higher Education and beyond. The RDF has been also adopted by the University of Oxford as well as the Open University and assists MORU in complying with the training requirements of those universities. The RDF was developed using empirical data, collected from interviews with researchers, and this offers an insight to students into what professional researchers and academics believe is needed to progress in a research career. The RDF is divided in to four main 'domains', each of which contain three sub-domains. Within these sub-domains are a further sixty-three categories which offer a fuller description of what is required within each area.

The RDF is designed for:

  • Researchers to evaluate and plan their own personal, professional and career development
  • Managers and supervisors of researchers in their role supporting the development of researchers
  • Trainers, developers, human resources specialists and careers advisors in the planning and provision of support for researchers' development
  • Employers to provide an understanding of the blend of skills unique to researchers and their potential as employees.

Through coordination by the training committee, the many aspects of the RDF are covered in the MORU postgraduate student training program. Lectures and workshops are provided by MORU staff as well as invited speakers to fulfil the requirements of the RDF.
