ARU Blogs — Mark Warnes

Hello, my name is Mark Warnes and I’m the Research Fellow in Anglia Learning & Teaching. I have a degree in Sociology and Politics, and a MA in Learning and Teaching, and I am currently undertaking a PhD entitled, An Exploration of the Possible Relationship between Reward and Recognition and Teaching Excellence in Higher Education.

My main areas of work are the Learning and Teaching Project Award scheme, the Good Teaching Exchange, the annual Learning and Teaching Conference, and the Pedagogic Research Community, including the Pedagogic Research Directory.

I also carry out individual and collaborative research or evaluation projects that are relevant to the successful implementation of our Education Strategy. I support Faculty staff in using quantitative and qualitative methodologies in LTA projects and proposals, and provide advice and support for research-informed teaching.

I am fast becoming recognised as an expert in NVivo and Twitter (10 Days of Twitter), having delivered courses on both of these for several years.

I love cooking, especially curries, and particularly baking, especially cakes – see my Instagram for pictures. I’m a proud father of two girls, and one very cheeky grandson.
