Pedagogy

This section contains teaching modules being developed as part of the MPL Project. These modules explore specific aspects of media law and media policy, and are conducted in both Instruction and Workshop modes. The modules on media law, developed by ALF, address Defamation, Obscenity, Sedition and Hate Speech and are directed at students in both media law and media studies. The modules approach media law from multiple perspectives, consolidating colonial history, legal doctrine and cultural studies. They are based on courses conducted in the M.S. programme in Communication Studies at St. Joseph’s College, Bangalore and the MA programme in Media Governance at CCMG. The two modules on “Document Analysis” and “Policy Analysis”, developed by CCMG, are based on workshops conducted in its MA programme in ‘Media Governance’. Focusing on techniques in policy studies, these workshop modules are located respectively in the courses on “Policy Research & Evaluation” (III Semester) and on “regulation in Theory and Practice” (IV Semester).
