Teaching

At the University of Iowa, I have taught a range of undergraduate courses such as Social Media Today, Journalistic Reporting & Writing, Media History & Culture, and Media Uses & Effects. I have worked closely with diverse groups of students in skills-based courses. Moreover, I have instructed in technology-enhanced classrooms designed to facilitate student-centered learning and multimodal activities and assignments. Before coming to the US, as a research associate at the Asian College of Journalism in India, I was involved in designing and supervising a developmental journalism field project that entailed postgraduate students investigating and reporting issues of concern to rural publics in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. I have also undergone certificate training at the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL), University of Iowa.

Following are some unsolicited comments in appreciation of my teaching:

Thank you Subin for a great semester! I learned a lot about aspects of journalism that I did not already know (SPJ Code of Ethics, libel, and much more). I appreciated your feedback on assignments and in-class activities because they helped develop my writing style further. Thanks again for being such a great TA! Hope you had an amazing semester.
