Planning your development as a new researcher – where to start?

20 October 2021 @ 14:00 - 15:00

What is this session about?

As a doctoral researcher you will be developing a unique set of knowledge, skills and behaviours that are important both for timely completion of your research degree and your future professional success. Success looks different for all of us, so it is up to you to decide what your priorities are, how you need to develop and how that can be achieved.

Taking a planned approach can help make the path smoother and enable you to be a more successful researcher in the long run. This session will take you through the process of Development Needs Analysis against the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) that is required for RF1. There will be the chance for discussion to help you identify what you need to know right now and seek out opportunities for practising, improving and reflecting on these skills.

What do I need to do before attending?

Please review the ‘Doctoral School and Training’ section of the Oct 2021 Induction Materials on the RESEARCH DEGREES blackboard site before attending and come ready with any questions.

Who is the session for?

This session is for all Doctoral Students across SHU and is aimed at those in the first 3 months of doctoral study (6 months if part-time) i.e. pre-RF1 stage. It will be led by Dr Elizabeth Scanlon from the Doctoral School Team.

RDF Sub-Domain(s):
