My pedagogical philosophy is based on two main concerns.
First, I seek to combine theory and practice in both production and
theoretical courses. For production courses, I teach students
to be able to articulate their own creative work in a larger social and
cultural context through readings and discussions related to
the production themes. For theoretical courses, I encourage students
to produce a creative project reflecting their critical concerns.
For example, if a student does a research project about “subjectivity
and representation,” she would produce an experimental video work
about representations of herself and others who are not related to
that student. In this way, students are exposed to the difficult question
of representation both in theoretical and practical levels.
As a media scholar, I am dedicated to educating our future media
intellectuals who will understand the importance of production
aesthetics as well as media practitioners who care about advancing the democratic potential of the media.
