A teacher educator and key Primary Team ICT advisor and mathematics tutor. I lead on ICT and mathematics modules for both undergraduate and postgraduate primary teaching courses leading to QTS at the University of Wolverhampton.
Since becoming a Teacher Educator in September 2005 my research interests have focussed on innovative use of technology to support teaching and learning. I have worked with colleagues and led research into an e-version Record of Professional Development (RoPD) for primary teacher trainees and partnership primary schools exploiting the use of ubiquitous technologies, presenting his work and both national and international conferences. Current research continues to be focussed on e-learning and innovative use of technology to support and enhance learning and teaching.
I am Year 1 Lead Tutor and so am researching into how best to support the transition of new applicants onto the primary courses we offer. This research has led to providing a bespoke induction course for new applicants and work towards providing online support forums to meet their needs.
Prior to becoming a senior lecturer, Marc worked as an Advanced Skills Teacher of ICT and mathematics and taught in primary schools for eleven years. It was his undergraduate degree in electronic engineering that motivated his interests in computing and communication technology within schools and therefore has a passion for the current Computing curriculum.
