as in the BU Researcher/Academic developer framework! Not as in Brad Pitt the Hollywood A lister, but both equally as exciting!
BRAD is a tailor made framework of development sessions based on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) which you can dip in and out of, undertaking only those sessions you would find helpful.
This holistic framework provides professional and personal development in the key areas of:
A. Knowledge & Intellectual Abilities
B. Personal Effectiveness
C. Research Governance & Organization
D. Engagement, Influence & Impact
The programme comprises of a wide range of facilitated development sessions held on campus (by internal and external presenters), online research modules from Epigeum (so you can learn in your own time) and the Vitae’s RDF.
The facilitated sessions cover everything from:
- Financial Management
- Career advice
- The Principles of Grounded theory
- Time Management for Researchers
- Impact through your research.
And much, much more.
For facilitated sessions, just book through the Staff Development webpages and for online modules, simply log into myBU and search the BRAD community to view all courses and to get started!
