Production Team

Project Description

The digital medium provides unique opportunities to use media in the teaching and learning process. The CLIx Media Production team collaborates with curriculum domain teams to produce audio-visual media for student modules and Teacher Professional Development modules.  Among the many things we do  are writing stories for the English curriculum, recording videos and interviews of students and teachers at work, making videos for teacher professional development courses and creating illustrations for student modules. We also help the Communications team by making  posters and videos.

Team Lead, Centre for Education, Innovation and Action Research, TISS

    I am a filmmaker and a media professional. I have worked with non-profit projects to bring their stories of hard work and success to screen. Prior to CLIx, I have worked with Reliance Foundation and Swades Foundation. Required or not, I bring my experience as a filmmaker, no-time-journalist and researcher to every situation in life. My areas of interest are making films, asking questions and talking. At CLIx, I lead the production team to create audio/visual media for students, teachers and the general public.
