Dr. Yancong Xie (Ray)
Unit Coordinator and Lecturer

Yancong worked in multiple Australian public universities and higher education institutions, teaching students from various backgrounds at all levels (PhD, MBA, MBIS, BBIS, & BIT). He views himself as a study peer of his students instead of an instructor. With the goal of teaching being to make every one of his students feel cared for, he supports them to realize their dreams and achieve success by themselves. He hopes his students can enjoy the learning process and adopt self-study habits which can greatly benefit them after their course.


Biography

Ray received his doctoral degree from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in December 2020. His education background is on computer science, mathematics, and information systems. He has extensive F2F and online teaching experiences in the Australian higher education sector, teaching MBA, mathematics, information systems, project management, and game design and programming. His research interest is in the areas of theorizing, simulation modelling, organizational robustness, and online reviews.


Teaching Philosophy

I deliver subject contents mostly in a discussion forum style or a seminar style, encouraging students to proactively study in my classes. I view myself as a study peer of my students instead of an instructor. My ultimate goal of teaching is to make every one of my students feel being cared, so I can support them to realize their values and achieve success by themselves. I hope my students can enjoy the learning process and adopt a self-study habit which can greatly benefit them after my classes.
