Seminar at Legacy Hotel

Sunday, March 18, 2007

On the 30th of January 2007, Institute Kajian Sejarah dan Patriotisme Malaysia (IKSEP) with the cooperation Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka Wilayah Selatan (DBPWS) and Faculty of Communication and Media Studies (UiTM) organized a Seminar about "Mertabatkan Budaya Bangsa Melalui Penulisan Media dan Perhubungan Awam". The event was held at Legacy Hotel in Malacca from 8.30 in the morning until 6.00pm. The participants were most from UiTM, Maktab Perguruan, Kolej Islam and Politeknik in Malacca. The topic that were discussed are about Ethics and Challenges in media, Public Relations in Global Era, Effective Writing in Media, Media Roles in Tourism Industry and etc. One of the presenters was my ex-lecturer Assoc. Prof. Roslena Ahmad the one who presented about ethics in the media.
The seminar was quite interesting at the beginning but a little bit boring during the second session in the evening as most of the participants were getting tired. The best thing is, the students get exposed by the issue that media face nowadays and tried to find out the reality of working as media practitioners. At least, during this seminar, students have gotten some ideas and preparations for their careers. Last but not least, from the seminar, the organizer had stated the resolutions for the media to look; which one of the resolutions was contributed by me. Hopefully, by attending this seminar, I can update my knowledge and really hope that this kind of seminar will be hold frequently. Wasslam....
