Share your Research: A programme of Online Webinars

Closing date 23 Aug 19

SRHE Newer and Early Career Researchers Network 2019

Through the current SRHE programme of Network events and online events the Society seeks to provide a platform to present the most interesting and cutting edge research taking place within the field of higher education research.

We strongly suspect that there are many important areas under investigation, particularly within our newer researcher community that are not seeing the light of day.

We want to try to dig a little deeper, to find out more about what is happening in our field, and share this with our members and other interested parties in a lively and interesting manner.

Would you be interested in being part of this and share YOUR research with a wider audience of interested peers? If so, here’s what to do next.

  1. Presentation title, research domain
