Researcher Development Skills Framework

It is important for researchers (including higher degree by research candidates) to develop generic (also called transferrable, professional and soft) skills for degree completion, career progression, personal development and employability.

The Researcher Development Skills Framework (RDSF) was designed by Graduate Research at University of Canberra. This articulates key areas in which researchers need to develop skills during their candidatures and/or careers.

The RDSF allows researchers to audit skills and identify gaps, and aligns with the HDR Development training program which provides opportunities to build skills and fill gaps.

For more information about the RDSF consult this mini-guide.
