Geduld established the first film study course at Indiana University. He once said: "Since then I have taught or proposed most of the basic courses in film study at Indiana University. My writing and teaching have been intimately connected: The books I have published and the series I have edited have developed in response to practical pedagogical considerations. My introduction of courses on the study of television genres has followed the same lines as the film teaching. My writing and my teaching have always been expressions of passionate preoccupation. I constantly strive to break new ground, to teach new courses, to research and write about neglected or little-known subjects, and to create new interests for my students and readers. The reward is not only to succeed (at times), but also to have the pleasure of being among the first to see over the next hill." Since his retirement in 1996, Geduld has written a two-act play, three one-act plays, and a collection of four hundred limericks.
