Mark is committed to improving distance and flexible learning provision and has experience in all stages of the development and delivery of distance learning programmes. He joined the University of Kent in August 2012 to lead on distance and blended learning development. The Graduate School has committed to supporting schools in developing a range of taught postgraduate programmes which will be delivered part-time via blended and distance learning. Mark's post directly supports this development.
Mark originally read Mathematics at the University of Nottingham where he also completed his PGCE. After qualifying he taught at a
Nottinghamshire comprehensive but soon returned to study, gaining an MSc in Computing at Staffordshire University. This led
to a research post and in 2004 where he completed his PhD, focussing on applications of artificial intelligence to environmental monitoring.
Building on his experience and interest in both teaching and technology, Mark then joined the University of East London's distance
learning team to define and refine suitable models for distance learning programmes, and to write and review interactive materials.
Mark's other interests include writing, cartooning and football.back to top
