Given the current information explosion and the rise of digital media, there is a growing need for journalists who understand the ins and outs of balanced news and new journalistic tools. The director at Shoolini's School of Media & Communications is veteran & practising journalist Vipin Pubby. He comes with 40 years of experience and is a former Resident Editor of The Indian Express. Besides Pubby, the school's other director Nishtha Shukla Anand is a journalist with past experience in India Today and Reuters. She is also Director Communications at Shoolini. The faculty also comprises experts from various new-age mediums such as radio, films, television and digital media.
Real-Life Media Experiences on Campus
1. Students produce the Shoolini Newsletter
The school prides itself on the fortnightly Shoolini Newsletter that the students publish. It covers campus news as the students scout around as real reporters. They complete the production by editing stories, designing pages, clicking pictures and sending it to print at the Indian Express press.
2. English & Hindi bulletins of the students & by the students
Students are groomed as TV anchors and reporters to produce a Shoolini Samvad in Hindi and a Shoolini TV in English. Again, students work as reporters and anchors to generate news. They also get to hone their video editing, graphic designing and animation skills as they produce the complete bulletin using the studio facilities available on campus.
