UPES Dehradun’s School of Modern Media engaged Newsworthy.Studio to help shape the future of the media ecosystem. The task at hand: designing a semester-long curriculum for undergraduate students on how the media covers—and should cover–gender and its intersection with other axes of life, such as caste, class, identity and religion. Our Gender and Media curriculum included sessions on Gender 101, Family, Labour, Work, Culture, Law, Politics and Violence.

The Challenge

Prep undergraduate students to use the gender lens at India’s only digital-first new media school

The Outcome

Curriculum & pedagogy design and instruction of a Gender and Media module

Transforming Media Education

Through canonical and contemporary reading material, interactive sessions, workshops and graded assignments, the curriculum brought together gender frameworks in an effective hands-on way with tons of new media examples, learnings and insights. Veteran journalist and founder of Newsworthy.Studio Anubha Bhonsle took on the role of Associate Professor of Media Practice at UPES to teach the Gender and Media curriculum. The course has been running for two years now.
