Dr. Mark has a wide variety of research interests, including the expanding use of XBLR as a reporting mechanism for publicly traded companies, the emergence of value-based accounting for specialized financial instruments arising out of the 2008 financial collapse (FASB 157), and the use of three-dimensional online immersive virtual environments (3DOLIVES) as an educational delivery platform. He has four articles in accounting, finance, and management out for review and is currently working on a major project concerning the use of Second Life (a 3DOLIVE) as a teaching tool for emergency management skills with the Colleges of Education and Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University.
Dr. Mark has published articles in a variety of journals and other publications, and has prepared and presented over 150 hands-on workshops and presentations at state, regional, and national conferences. He is active in a variety of professional organizations including the American Accounting Association, Institute of Management Accountants, and the National Business Education Association.
For much of his career Dr. Mark taught technology education at the college level, primarily business and organizational communications and emerging instructional technologies, both in face-to-face and online environments. In 2011 through a strange set of occurrences, Dr. Mark changed disciplines, becoming “retooled” as an accounting professor, largely because of his experience in accounting information systems and managerial accounting. Most recently he was an Associate Professor Education at Lander University, a small public university in upstate South Carolina.
Dr. Mark has a wife, three grown children, two Scottish Terriers, and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. His wife Christine is an Assistant Professor of Human Resource Development and Technology Management in the College of Education at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, and also rides her own Harley Davidson. The Scottish Terriers, Molleigh and Duke, are not impressed with either of them.
