RAISE Reading Group (June 2022)

Recently the RAISE Network (Researching, Advancing & Inspiring Student Engagement) discussed our (Dr. Cathy Stone and Dr. Rebecca Bennett) paper, Conceptualising and Building Trust to Enhance the Engagement and Achievement of Under-Served Students, published in The Journal of Continuing Higher Education.

Dr. Rachel Forsyth chaired the discussion, and while Cathy, Bec nor I were unable to attend, we are so grateful for hearing about the discussion. You can read the thoughtful write-up by Dr. Forsyth via the AdvanceHE website, linked here:

You can join RAISE on 5 July for their last session of the UK academic year, when they are planning a happy and positive discussion about this paper:
