New Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Curriculum Leadership announced

June 22nd, 2020

Following an internal recruitment exercise, Mark Bradley, currently Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education and Student Experience in the Faculty of Arts, has been appointed as the new University Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor for Teaching and Curriculum Leadership. Mark takes up his new role on August 1st this year.

In this new role, Mark will be working closely with Professor Sarah Speight, who assumes the role of Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education and Student Experience, also with effect from August 1st. He will chair the Teaching and Learning Committee and work with academic and professional service leads on quality assurance and enhancement. Mark will also maintain a close working relationship with the Students’ Union to promote effective student engagement.

Mark said : “I have been working closely alongside University leaders in teaching and learning for over five years, and I am looking forward immensely to working with this terrific team in a new capacity. Our University – alongside the whole sector – is facing some unique challenges, but I am confident that we are in an extremely strong position.

I am committed to helping students across the University to overcome these challenges and do their very best work. At the top of my priority list is open and equal access to education for all, and positive student outcomes, whether that is further study or preparing them for the workplace and their careers ahead.

I also look forward to working closely with colleagues in Schools and Professional Services to ensure that our postgraduate and distance-learning provision is sector-leading, and I will be collaborating with the new Researcher Academy and Nottingham Global Online to enhance the education and student experience of these student cohorts.”

Mark is a very experienced teacher and leader who served as Faculty Director of Teaching prior to his appointment as Faculty APVC. He has worked closely with the Office for Students as a Pilot Subject Panel Member, and Interdisciplinary Humanities lead, for the Teaching Excellence Framework. Mark’s research and teaching expertise, which has earned him promotion to the role of Professor of Classics from August 1st, focuses on the ancient senses, the intellectual culture of ancient Rome, and its legacy in the modern world.

Professor Sarah Speight is delighted that Mark is taking on this role. She said: “Mark’s deep understanding of the University, and his commitment to student well-being and success will be invaluable as we plan and prepare for the challenges of the next academic year.”
