How is the RSD Framework like Bingo? I find myself describing the RSD Framework like a Bingo game when introducing the RSD Framework to program directors and others. The idea is that each program will keep the RSD framework and it’s Levels of Autonomy (BINGO) and the Facets of Research (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) in tact. Much like the major headings of a BINGO card. Within this context, each program across the university describes in their own words how the B1, B2, B3, . . . I1, I2, I3, . . . N1, N2, N3 . . . etc. are appropriately described. As discussions occur across the campus and across programs the descriptors change. Clarity comes from the idea that each program can use its own language but during discussions instead of everyone asking, “how do you define research”, the questions will be, “where does what you are referring to fall on the RSD BINGO card?” Moving forward we can save time by having discussions related to levels of research instead of constantly struggling with how to define research. I am not sure this analogy works at the individual course level but it has served me well as a starting point for several conversations to date.
