Research Skill Development
for curriculum design and assessment

Welcome to the Research Skill Development (RSD) Homepage

This site is home to a community of academics, tutors, librarians, student support staff and, of course, students, that uses the Research Skill Development (RSD) framework (Willison & O'Regan, 2007) to create discipline-based and interdisciplinary approaches and resources. This use of the RSD enables the explicit, incremental and coherent development of students' and academics' research skills. Click to view an introductory video.
