Early Career Researchers

The Early Career Researcher (ERC) SIG aims to raise awareness of new development within student engagement, supporting those in the beginning stages of their career in student engagement research and or in academia. The group seeks to meet the needs of not only those pursuing studies and or careers as researchers within HE but also those who are practitioners undertaking student engagement research to support their development. 

Complementing RAISE’s mission to “come together for beneficial scholarly discussion, sharing ideas and creating collaborative projects”, the SIG looks to provide opportunities for ECRs to develop their knowledge and skills, broadening their network to enhance collaboration within the HE sector. The SIG will also help RAISE to support and connect with the wider community in student engagement.
