CSAS Lecture Series | Teaching Hindi in the United States: Strengths and Challenges
Dr. Ranjan is an active member of the Hindi-Urdu teaching community in the USA. He has designed and supervised many projects at the national level. His research interests include Hindi pedagogy, the South Asian diaspora, and issues of heritage learners. His recent projects include three audio-visual modular projects. They are http://hindistartalk.lrc.columbia.edu/, http://urduaiis.lrc.columbia.edu/, and https://indiafestivals.lrc.columbia.edu/. The 101 newly created Hindi and Urdu audio-visual modules are serving as innovative resources for teachers and learners of Hindi and Urdu. These stunning and colorful video clips are based on real-life situations with varied linguistic, social and cultural content. They are short, unscripted, unrehearsed, and offer samples of spontaneous and authentic speech. These modules are among the most used learning modules globally.
