Fresher to Professor: help improve the RSD7

The extened version of the RSD is called the Researcher Skill Development framework – or RSD7 for short- and adds 2 further degrees of autonomy, to unambiguously place Professors on the same researching continuum as First Year students. The RSD7 has been around since 2008, however along with the 5-level version it is undergoing a revamp using feeback from the past five years.

You can find the current version at http://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/framework/RSD_RSD7_2013.pdf . Feel free to use ‘comments’ to suggest improvements- whether in text, formatting or appearance. Any opinions about the RSD7 are welcome- whether good, bad or ugly. The idea is to have an optimised version by 18 May, as we aim to submit around then an article outlining the framework and its deep use in one school over an extended period.
