Weekly Class Report: Introduction to Broadcast Media

 14th - 18th October, 2022

Introduction to Broadcast Media

The week started with a revision of the format of writing for television broadcasts. Dr. Nanda assigned the class the task of creating a news story about the freshers on campus. The class was divided into four groups and the news stories were shot on campus. 

The students showed the prepared news stories according to the assigned groups. Each of those was screened for the class. Dr. Nanda then asked the class to carefully analyze each of the stories and try to figure out what sections they needed improvement in. She then gave her feedback on how to improve their stories. 

The students were then asked to create another news story on the same topic so as to be able to track the progress and changes in their script and style. 

A lecture was held to allow the students to work on their script writing skills. Concerns were addressed and questions were answered regarding the same. The class was asked to research current affairs for a discussion in the following week.
