Biography

Ray's first career was as a teacher for the Dept of Education. He started at Nepean CAE in 1987 teaching Research Methods for the Social Science to students of the first BA Communication degree on the Kingswood campus. He was then employed by Kuring-Gai CAE teaching interpersonal, group and Masters writing subjects, then came back to Nepean in 1991. From this year Ray has taught a variety of Communication units including media, group, writing, research, and digital research to both undergraduates and postgraduates in the Communication field. Ray was one of the first instructors in Australia to employ blended learning techniques, having set up his first Web server in 1996 and continuously developing this style of teaching to the present day.

Ray's latest papers include: Communication, mainstream media, and Twitter: A summative content analysis of the concepts surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020, Global Media Journal, 2021; and The Future of Higher Education: Is technology the answer?; and Evaluating a blended learning degree (Best paper, 8th Teaching and Education Conference, Vienna, Austria. Sep 2019).

Ray is currently updating his co-authored textbook, Communicating as Professionals to the 4th edition.

Ray currently supervises three doctoral students in the areas of communication media aspects of 1. vaccination, 2. sporting violence, 3. Hezbollah. He administers his own NeCTAR server that houses software that permits students to collect Twitter data and support collaboration. Ray is experienced with survey research design, content analysis and big data analytics.

Ray is also an innovative guitar maker of jazz, classical and acoustic guitars. His guitars are currently being played around Sydney by jazz players,such as Steve Brien (NSW Conservatorium) and Josh Hindmarsh (USA) and have been purchased by Australian guitar collectors.

Interested potential higher degree students should email Ray first to discuss their research ideas in the areas of technology, media, culture and education.
