During the Covid-19 pandemic, while facing the challenges of lockdown and social distancing, we experimented with the students working on their communication skills that they have developed in the “Communication Skills” elective course including body language, facial expressions, voice modulation, teamwork and coordination, the art of words, etc.
The ability was assessed through a novel assignment that needed teamwork in spite of social distancing and lockdown challenges.
The method of expression was preparing a short film (video) and direction, choreography, etc. in a group without having a physical meet which turned out really well. No outdoor visits were performed for this assignment, yet students were successfully able to bring out the essence of the chosen topics for film making.
