DOT-Uni welcomes Dr. Maca and Dr. Villota, two faculty members that will form the team to situate our fully online curricula not only in Asia but globally.
The faculty welcomes the appointment of Dr Mark Norman Alberto Maca as Associate Professor beginning this semester. Mark did graduate studies as a scholar under the European Union’s Erasmus Mundus programme and was conferred a joint degree in education (lifelong learning) policy and management by the Institute of Education-University College London (UK), Danish School of Education-Aarhus University (Denmark) and Universidad de Deusto (Spain). He completed his doctoral studies in comparative and international education as JSPS-Ronpaku Fellow in Kyushu University (Japan). Dr Maca is published internationally focusing on the nexus of Philippine education, labor migration and development policy, and national identity formation in history and citizenship education curricula and textbooks. His publications include chapters on the Philippines in the edited volume Imagining Japan in Post-war East Asia (Morris et al, eds, 2013, Routledge); in the volume Constructing Modern Asian Citizenship (Vickers and Kumar eds, 2015, Routledge), and in the journals Compare and the Asia-Pacific Journal of Education. Part of his doctoral training also covers the politics of identity in East Asian societies and official programs of identity formation - as pursued through history education as well as museums, memorials and heritage policy. He is currently working on two (2) book chapter projects organized by Ateneo de Manila University and University of Canberra (Sociology of Education in the Philippines), and Bloomsbury Academic (Education and Childhood Studies).
