Research and Knowledge Exchange Development Framework and your appraisal

We posted a couple of weeks ago about the new Research and Knowlege Exchange (RKE) Development Framework. With appraisals looming, we’ll be going along to discuss the framework with line managers across the Faculties, but you may wish to start thinking about the pathways or sessions you may wish to join in order to progress your career and research and knowledge exchange plans. Presented below are a list of the pathways confirmed at this point, and indicative content for each. We are working hard to confirm further sessions and to provide more detail as soon as possible on the OD webpages.
