The Vitae Researcher Development Framework provides an overarching framework to support researchers in identifying the wide range of knowledge, behaviours and attributes of excellent researchers.
Lenses on the Vitae Researcher Development have been developed to focus on the knowledge, behaviours and attributes that are developed by researchers and that can be acquired through or used in various contexts such as information literacy.
Vitae have been working with RIN, SCONUL and members of the Working Group on Information-Handling to develop a lens on the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and the SCONUL Seven Pillars of Information Literacy. This lens is now available for consultation and we would welcome your feedback on this.
Each lens will be accompanied with resources and materials to support their use but we would particularly welcome comments on:
* Whether you think there are any areas of the framework that should or should not be highlighted?
* Are there areas you would prioritise above others?
* How do you think you would use the lens?
Feedback will be incorporated into the final version of the lens which will be made available later in April.
