The DanceHE Early Career Group is designed for those who consider themselves in the early stages of a career in Dance in Higher Education. This may be in relation to teaching, research or postgraduate study. We welcome people from all backgrounds, for example:
Those who have worked professionally in the industry and want to get into higher education teaching
Those who have worked in other teaching contexts and wish to move to higher education
Those who have engaged in higher education at some level, for example as a visiting lecturer, but want to develop their careers on this path
Those who have undertaken research roles and want to transition into a lecturing role
Those who are new to higher education dance lecturing or research
Those in postgraduate study
The group aims to provide opportunities to network and support each other as well as share skills and initiate opportunities for development. We intend to hold meetings three times a year, usually along side other CPD events. We also offer a range of activity that involves working with more experienced academics and DanceHE board members.
