Sungduan: Extramural Training 2015

SEVERAL award-winning journalists and well-respected media personalities in the country are set to converge and share their expertise to communication trainers and campus journalists in Summer Media Extramural Training 2015.

Dubbed "Going beyond the Conventional: Training the Trainers, Campus Press and Communication Students" the activity will make April a significant month to remember for all participants as they will be undergoing an intensive training in the field of broadcast, and online journalism.

Organized by the School Press Advisers Movement Inc. (SPAM, Inc.) under the auspices of founder and president Melanie Briones, the media training aims to help all participants understand more about the craft and art of news production for radio and give them tips on news writing, news delivery and broadcast.

The journalism skills of the participating delegates from the different schools will also be more honed as they will learn new techniques needed in news, sports, and sci-tech writing including the Online Journalism craft.

Expected to give lectures and trainings in Extramural Training 2015 are the Voice Artist for CreatiVoices Productions CEO and Managing Director Pocholo “Voice Master” Gonzales, UP Diliman Professor and DZUP Radio Program Director Mel Estonilo, and blogger, online journalist, social media professional, and educator Mark Pere Madrona.

Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) Correspondent and TV Host Tonette Orejas is also one of the invited lecturers with Ben Domingo Jr., Chairperson of the CHED Technical Committee for Journalism and a member of the CHED Technical Panel for Social Sciences and Communication. Domingo, a former columnist of the Sports Weekly Magazine is accredited/certificated referee of the Badminton Asia Confederation.

Kim Joshua Daño who made a name as an award-winning Graphic Artist during his campus journalism stint and now a Division Trainer for Campus Journalism in the Division of Imus City for Editorial Cartooning and Collaborative Publishing complete the list of lecturers.

The summer media training is open to all communication trainers, students, and campus press or members of student publications. This will be held at Marello Retreat House, Tagaytay City on April 28-30, 2015.

One should never stop learning. Attending seminars and workshops is very important to learn the necessary skills needed to be competitive and discover the new ideas on how to be more effective and efficient journalists and campus paper advisers.
