Mr Mark Quinn profile picture
  • Associate Professor (Teaching)
  • IOE - Learning & Leadership
  • UCL Institute of Education

I taught history and politics in secondary schools in the London area for 22 years. My leadership roles included head of 6th form, and assistant headteacher for staff development. I have done associate work for Middlesex University (school-based Masters) and London Metropolitan University (Schools Direct teacher training). I have worked full-time at IOE since 2016.

When not at work I am a novelist. I have two published novels, Finding Dan (2016) and Europejski (2020).

Research Summary

I lead research and development projects with teachers, often in groups of schools. The focus for the research is determined by the interests of the teacher or the priorities of the school. In 2019 I conducted a study with 13 teachers on the impact upon engagement of replacing written with verbal feedback.

Teaching Summary

I am programme leader for UCL Early Career Teacher Consortium, leading the writing team for the Early Career Framework.

I devise and facilitate middle leader programmes for groups of schools. These have included Future Zone (in north Islington), Enfield and the Alpha Plus Group. 
I collaborate with colleagues on international work, for example an R&D programme for Cognita, and a Leadership for Learning programme in Spain.
