Dr Ray Campbell

I have been teaching in the Further and Higher Education sectors for over 20 years. Prior to teaching, I worked as a professional stand-up comedian under the name ‘Buddy Hell’ on the London and national circuits until 1999 when I began a PGCE (Post-16) at the Institute of Education, UCL. When I started teaching in Further Education, it had been my intention to teach drama and performing arts. However, because of a shortage of Media Lecturers who specialised in critical theory, I ended up teaching the theoretical modules on the AVCE, GNVQ and A Level Media Studies courses. In 2005, While I was working on my PhD, I worked as a Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Media and Communications, BA (Hons) Psychosocial Studies and Foundation Sociology courses. I joined The Foundation Degree as Teaching Fellow (Humanities) in September 2019.
