About

Dr. Raymond Anderson joins the University of Guam as Associate Professor of Mass Media in the Communication department.  Raymond was born and grew up on another island, the island of Jamaica, far away in the Caribbean.  For the past 17 years he has lived with his family on mainland USA and he is looking forward to revisiting island life, but now on Guam.

Raymond has a diverse background with working experiences in marine sciences, business, communication, film and media arts.  His love of the dramatic arts and helping Christian theater ministries led him to switch directions from his day job of managing Jamaica’s largest fish farming operation to completing a PhD in Communication and Media Effects at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.   He went on to teach at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon.  At George Fox, Raymond was instrumental in helping the Cinema and Media Communication major grow significantly into the vibrant program that now exists.

For the past four years Raymond has been at Sterling College in Kansas where he developed yet another media program that included various concentrations including Cinema Production, Public Relations and Multi-Media.   This was his first time living in the Mid-West and he and his wife are ready to move back closer to the ocean.  He is an avid swimmer and snorkeler and would like to get back into SCUBA diving.

Interests

My major research interests focus on Electronic Service. I have particular interests in using theories in risk, trust, value co-creation, and technology adoption as the basis for empirical research and practitioner enquiry related to the design of E-service.

Currently, I am working on projects in investigating how the development of trust and value co-creation in social media affect purchase intention of online consumers, and how different design attributes of E-service website affect its adoption. I also conduct research on the E-government and E-learning adoption and green information systems and sustainable management.

About

 

Kirk Johnson was raised for most of his childhood in the mountains of Western India where he attended an International Baha’i School with students from over 34 different countries. This experience had a profound and indelible impact on his life, world view and the course of his future career. He returned to the United States for University at the age of 17 and found himself drawn to the social sciences. After earning his Ph.D. from McGill University in Montreal, Canada he moved to the polar opposite side of the world (a tropical island in the Pacific) where he now lives in a little cottage with his beautiful wife Sarah and their son Aidan, a stone’s through from the tranquil blue ocean. And when he is not building tree houses or forts with his son, or tending his garden or bumming on the beach, he works at the University of Guam as a professor of Sociology.
 
He has lived on Guam since 1998 and has served as Director of the Bali Field School for a decade and a half. Traveling to Bali, Indonesia with students and scholars for the past fifteen years has been the most rewarding part of his job, allowing him the opportunity to connect with others in ways that a classroom setting makes difficult. And though this project keeps him up late into the night planning and fundraising throughout the year, he knows that one glimpse of a student standing in the middle of a rice field on their first morning in Bali or watching their spirit transform as they sit on a dirt floor in a remote village and laugh and talk and sing with children and families that seem to live a life so radically different from their own, allowing them to reflect deeply on the social, economic, and geo-political forces that have created such vast differences in wealth in the world today, makes it all worth it. Kirk’s areas of research and academic interest include development and social change, globalization, mass media, culture, religion and education, human ecology and sustainability.
 
Kirk is also very involved in learning about the nature of capacity building and community development among diverse Pacific island communities and his work and service as a Baha’i takes him to communities throughout Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia to learn how village communities at the grassroots are endeavoring to empower children and junior youth, are striving to foster the devotional life of their families and communities and how indigenous peoples from varied backgrounds are learning to take charge of their own material and spiritual destinies. To learn more about any of this work and to get involved in these efforts please write to him at kirkjohnson99@gmail.com

About

Yoshito Kawabata is an associate professor with a background in developmental psychology. He received a B.A. and a M.A. in psychology from the University of Oregon and a Ph.D. in child psychology from the Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota.

Yoshi’s research interest focuses on interpersonal relationships and psychopathology and the roles of contextual factors such as schools, neighborhoods, and cultures on these domains.

He is particularly interested in examining risk and protective factors that may influence developmental processes involving parenting, peer relationships, and forms of psychopathology (i.e., anxiety, depression, and aggression) with a cross-cultural and ethnically diverse sample. In another line of research, Yoshi uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative data and analyzes how and why children and adolescents accept or reject intergroup contact or cross-ethnic friendships.

He has supervised undergraduate and graduate students with their thesis and provided considerable support for research and writing. He has enjoyed these mentoring experiences and is excited to work with students at University of Guam.

About

I am currently a tenured, full professor in Foundations & Educational Research at the School of Education, University of Guam.  I am also the Chairperson of the FERHS Division, Chair of the SOE Graduate Faculty Committee, and Chair for the graduate Special Education Program.  In my roles, I am a member of the SOE Academic Affairs Committee with 2 votes due to my dual role.  

I have a long history of working with grants in Special Education, particularly Personnel Preparation (OSEP), Health; EHDI programs (HRSA) and database development (CDC). I was immersed in grantsmanship from 1985 to the present and during my 19 years with the UOG Guam Center of Excellence for Developmental Disabilities Education, Research & Service (Guam CEDDERS).  I have taught extensively in the School of Education, Foundations and Special Education since 1983.  

I have had numerous research articles and presentations which have been presented at the local, regional, National, and International level conferences.  I continue to strive to improve education on Guam and throughout the Pacific region.  A new direction in research, at the current time, is conducting studies to compare the performance of students in K-12th who were educated in "charter schools" versus those educated in "public or private schools."
