Freire’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” reflected in CI exhibition

The Media Studies and Journalism (MSJ) Department held a Film Exhibition, as part of its Curriculum Integration programme, at Shilpakala Academy auditorium on April 29. Creative works including short films, documentary films, music videos, short animation films, TV shows, corporate/ NGO videos and TV news packages produced by the students of various courses were screened in the exhibition.

The Film Exhibition was inaugurated by the head of the department Professor Jude William Genilo. He also handed over certificates and awards to the outstanding performers of different apprenticeship programmes of the department. The MSJ Department conducts curriculum integration every semester to showcase the creative works of students, enable student interaction and strengthen links with one of its primary stakeholders – parents.

The CI theme for Spring 2018 was “Pedagogy of the Oppressed”. The theme is the title of the book written by educator Paulo Freire. He proposes a pedagogy with a new relationship between teacher, student, and society. Freire suggests that the learner be treated as a co-creator of knowledge.

Meanwhile, a 6-day Visual Art Exhibition of photographs, paintings, posters, masks, video arts, installation and performance arts and comics was held at Gallery 6 at Shilpakala Academy between April 23 and April 28. The exhibits produced by the students as part of their course work reflected the CI theme of the semester. Channel i News Editor Sakila Jesmine inaugurated the Visual Art Exhibition on April 23.
