Biography

Mark joined the university in 2007 after teaching in Further Education, and with some professional experience in TV news and script editing. His PhD – What’s in a Word? The Discursive Construction of Creativity (2010) – argued for a critical intervention in the use of the term ‘creativity’, particularly in education policy. He has presented this work at conferences in the UK, Europe and the USA and written about in the journals Networks and MERJ.

Mark also has interests in scriptwriting and censorship and has written two works for the BFI: Teaching Scriptwriting, Screenplays and Storyboards for Film and TV Production (2003) and Teaching Film Censorship and Controversy (2007). His recent edited collection, Teaching and Learning On Screen: Mediated Pedagogies (2016) explores the significance of representations of teachers and teaching in films and TV programmes, and includes chapters from the USA, South America, Australia and Europe.

He is currently supervising six doctoral students, is a tutor on the Doctor of Education programme, and teaches on the MA in Creative and Media Education...
