Mark is an Associate Professor in the fields of teacher education and creativities and the arts. His research and scholarly work focus on the changing nature of educators’ work, their identities, lived experiences and how educators navigate the ecologies of their respective learning environments. Linked to this focus is an interest in the ways concepts of quality and creativities are interpreted and promoted in education contexts.
He engages with arts-informed methodologies in these research domains to probe the uneasy tensions and intersections that influence change, capacity building and agency of individuals and communities. He is always keen to work, talk and collaborate with others who have an interest in these areas.
