Introduction to the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) Planner – Practical IT session

21 October 2019 @ 11:00 - 12:00

As part of the RF1 (or equivalent) process, new doctoral researchers at Sheffield Hallam University are required to confirm they have undertaken a Development Needs Analysis and set some initial actions in priority areas. This must be done on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) Planner and the ‘My Actions’ and ‘My Action Plan’ reports must be attached to your RF1 (or equivalent) application.

This practical, hands-on session provides an introduction to the Vitae RDF Planner online tool and an opportunity for new doctoral researchers to get started on their Development Needs Analysis and to ask questions

If you don’t already have an RDF planner account, please contact Liz Brearley via doctoralschool@shu.ac.uk who will arrange this for you. Please make sure you have activated your account and can remember your log-in details before attending the session.

If you are unfamiliar with the process of planning your professional development then attendance at the session ‘Professional Development Planning using the Vitae Researcher Development Framework’ would be helpful but not essential.

Open to all, aimed at those in the first 3 months of doctoral study (6 months if part-time) i.e. pre-RF1 stage

The Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) is a professional development framework for researchers that describes the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of successful researchers. The RDF Planner is an online application that can be used to identify strengths, action plan, review achievements and create a portfolio of evidence.
