In this workshop participants will produce a version of the Research Skill Development (RSD) framework that suits their own context. The idea comes from academics, tutors and librarians who have collaborated and adapted the six facets of the RSD to suit a range of contexts and in ways we didn’t expect. The RSD framework was developed during an OLT National Teaching Fellowship by Dr John Willison, University of Adelaide.
This workshop is for staff wishing to develop the following learning and teaching practices in their units:
Multiple uses of the RSD facets with context-appropriate terminology provides various opportunities for these facets to become student thinking routines that develop researching, critical thinking and problem solving mindsets by graduation. This workshop provides you with collaborative time to learn about others’ models and adapt these so that you can mold your course or learning context:
Facilitator: Dr John Willison, University of Adelaide, OLT National Senior Teaching Fellow.
