Shuvo Saha has been involved in tertiary classroom teaching since 2015 and in scholastic endeavors, such as publishing and presenting, since 2012. During this course of tertiary level teaching he has taught students from diverse age and background. Mostly the undergraduate students do study with him; however, Shuvo has taught the early and mid career professionals in his English for Professional Development and Communication (EPDC) classes. His diverse teaching experience has also brought him in contact with learners from the underprivileged class of the society in BRAC Medhabikash classes. In addition to teaching, Shuvo finds solace in other aspects of scholastic practices. As a testament to that, he regularly writes to get published in indexed journals, speaks at conferences, and conducts workshops for students and peers. Shuvo also voluntarily serves as one of the executive editors of BELTA Journal. This is his return to the community and forms a part of his community of practice (CoP); the other part of his CoP involves collaboration with coolagues and peers from home and abroad. Shuvo’s professional philosophy stands on continuous professional development, integrity, equity, and empathy.
