Keynote Presentation Title: The Future of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in the Coronavirus Era
Ray Archee holds a PhD in Mediated Communication, and MA in Psychology. He is an academic at Western Sydney University, Australia and specialises in media, technology and higher education research. From 1996, Ray was one of the first instructors in Australia to use the Internet for undergraduate teaching, running his own webserver and creating his own web pages for his students. Although a pioneer of blended teaching, Ray believes that web pages and videoconferencing are never a replacement for traditional classrooms, unless totally necessary. In his spare time, Ray is a luthier of hand-made classical, acoustic and archtop guitars.
