You are here: Researcher Development Framework / Teaching


Teaching is an intrinsic and important part of most academic careers, and researchers applying for academic posts are increasingly expected to have some teaching experience, understanding and training. This lens maps the Vitae Researcher Development Framework to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for teaching in higher education. It shows how the expertise, knowledge and values that are required for teaching in higher education and articulated in the UKPSF can be transferred from your broad researcher experiences, and further developed.
