About Mark Carroll

I am currently the Principal Lecturer for Staffing & Resources in the Department of Clinical Psychology, Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Community.

I originally joined Teesside University in 2010 as a Senior Lecturer in the Paramedic Studies Team after a successful career in the Nursing & Paramedic professions as a Registered Adult Nurse and Paramedic.  Having left school in 1987 to follow an early career in administrative roles I found my passion for healthcare in 1996 when I began studying Adult Nursing.  I then focussed on my passion for out of hospital care and left nursing to pursue a career with the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) first as an Advanced Technician in 2001 moving to Paramedic in 2003; Team Leader in 2006; Clinical Practice Manager before a role in the Trust’s education centre.  I one of the Education Lead's working closely with Teesside University.  An opportunity came in 2010 to move to Teesside University full time as a Senior Lecturer, I successfully applied and have never looked back since.  I was instrumental in further enhancing the education of Paramedics as it moved rapidly towards an all graduate profession.  I have significant experience of a wide range of roles from module leader, placements coordinator and Programme Leader.  I was promoted to Principal Lecturer in October 2017.

Academically I hold a Masters Degree and have completed my PgCE in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education.  I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.  I have a number of published articles ranging from my keen interest in social media to more formal academic publications including a systematic review which questioned whether or not relatives should be routinely present at a cardiac arrest.

I am currently studying for my PhD which will be examining how students develop their professional identity in a digital context.
