REDS is a free, online conference for those interested in scholarship relating to researcher education and development. We take the broadest view of who a ‘researcher’ is, and what development means or looks like in practice, across a range of contexts. The Researcher Education and Development Scholarship Conference was founded by Dr. Kay Guccione at the University of Sheffield in 2015.


REDS is hosted online by the University of Leeds, Organisational Development and Professional Learning Department (OD&PL). OD&PL offer wide ranging professional development support for researchersstudent educationleadership and professional practice and digital practice.
