Mark Selkrig

 

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 they 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 areas 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.
Mark is the leader of the Artistic and Creative Education (ACE) Cognate Group at MGSE. His leadership roles also includes coordinating the Master of Teaching Secondary Program, the University of Melbourne's initial teacher preparation program for secondary teachers. He brings to this position particular expertise in pedagogical approaches to digital and blended learning. Mark has received awards for university teaching and research as well as successfully coordinating various teacher education programs at other institutions. As well as working in higher education, Mark’s professional experience includes working in primary and secondary schools, and sexual health education in the community health sector. He is also a practising artist, having participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and several community-based arts projects. Mark’s expertise, advocacy and leadership in his fields of expertise have been acknowledged with invitations to advise Victorian Government Departments including Creative Victoria and the Department of Education and Training, along with The Australia Council for the Arts. He has been a Board Member of Regional Arts Victoria (RAV) and Vice-president of Art Education Australia, (AEA). Mark was awarded life membership by RAV in acknowledgement of his leadership, outstanding work and advocacy for arts development and education. He is also a Churchill Fellow, in recognition of his contribution and research related to regional arts development and education.
