Through its Network Events and Professional Development Programme, SRHE seeks to provide a platform to present the most stimulating and innovative research taking place in higher education studies and practice. The Newer Researcher network recognises the body of exciting research being undertaken by newer and early career researchers and seeks to create a supportive space in which such researchers can present their work-in-progress, receive feedback, and develop connections with others with shared interests and expertise.
Please join us on 30 August for a one-hour lunchtime session where two of SRHE's Newer Researchers will present their work as a 'lightning talk' followed by Q&A. Questions and feedback from attendees are warmly welcomed - we aim for this to be a constructive space for work in progress.
