PIA brings trainings to
BISU Clarin, UB-VDTALC
TAGBILARAN CITY, September 3 (PIA)—Within a span of 15 days, the Philippine Information Agency in Bohol has to respond to requests for technical assistance for student writers and student leaders.
Last July 30, the PIA responded to a call for technical assistance on Student leadership capability building at the Bohol Island State University in Clarin Campus.
Last August 13, school papers of the University of Bohol’s Victoriano D Tirol Advanced Learning Center (UB-VDTALC) tapped the Philippine Information Agency in Bohol for their annual writing workshops for its school publications.
Trained were pupil writers of the VDT-ALC elementary publication The Seedling and its secondary publication called The Achiever.
Other than the PIA, the school also tapped prime Boholana feature writer Sonieta Labasan to a workshop on feature writing, editorial writing and cartooning.
For the PIA, the assigned workshop topics were on News writing, Sports Writing, Science and Technology Writing as well as photo journalism and photo captioning.
The school organized Seminar-workshop on Campus Journalism and Photo journalism is in preparation of the up-coming Division Schools Press Conference in 2016, said School Paper Adviser for The Achievers, Darelle Ainee Sansan.
The invitation for the seminar workshop is the second time that the PIA got from the UB VDTALC.
The UB-VDTALC training is the second that PIA rendered within the last 15 days.
Earlier, the PIA was at the Bohol Island State University in Clarin for the Student Leadership Training Seminars.
The PIA had the topics on social media and its legal implications, while it also teamed up with journalist and legislative researcher Ric Obedencio for its Parliamentary Procedures training.
With the popularity of the social media and its open platforms for journalism, BISU feels the need for a more responsible social media use by spreading out the implications of a post on the web. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
