I found media studies really fun except at times that were wasted because of him having to tell off silly students before starting class. He is really helpful when it comes to making films etc and working on internals/externals especially if you are willing to learn. He can be pretty funny at times

When I dealt with him he was a media studies teacher. Sure, studying the history of film and genre is fine and all but someone should have taught him more about computer technology and methods of NOT losing your work (clearly he didn't know what he was doing when it came to that aspect of the course - as a result, we kept losing our work because someone pushed the wrong button) Less interested in students and more in getting through the course as fast as he can, he's not easy to get along with.

Rob Lay was one of my favourite teachers at Avonside - however this may be because English was one of my strongest subjects. I think he's really helpful to students that are willing to learn.

He really does love media studies, I'll give him that. But I found him to be hard to understand at times, and not very clear on what he wanted us to do for certain standards.

Interested in his subject, but not in teaching. Talks too much about his family. Vague, pays much attention to the biographic approach to literature, & little attention to interpretation & analysis

Mr Lay always got off track and talked continuously about his daughter, the topics we studied weren't great and he blatantly favoured some students more than others.
