To understand how research can inform pedagogy, I have undergone certificate training at the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL). At the University of Iowa, I have taught a range of undergraduate-level 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 taught 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.

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.
