FRIDAY, 4 MARCH – The Student Welfare Committee (JAKMAS) of Tun Mustapha Residential College (KKTM) Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) had recently organised a News Writing Workshop.
The workshop was attended by 21 students of various levels under JAKMAS and representatives from each uniformed unit at KKTM.
The students were exposed to the correct and efficient ways to news writing, in addition to understanding its concept and format, which indirectly led to quality results.
Uniformed unit rep, Mohamad Firdaus Bin Kamarulzaman said, the sharing of knowledge on methods of writing would help them as this was not taught in a normal lecture, hence through this workshop they would learn the process of news writing in more detail.
“It would also improve and enhance our writing as well as raise awareness on the importance of professionalism and integrity in writing,” he said.
President of JAKMAS, Mohamad Asraf Abu Bakar said, this workshop could help students in future, particularly in their career.
“This will help ensure the image and reputation of KKTM enhanced through effective writing skills,” he added.
The lecturer, who is also the Head of KKTM, Lt. Col. (PA) Dr. Mohamad Nizam Nazarudin said, the news writing workshop was to sharpen talents among JAKMAS members in the aspect of news writing and journalism.
“Besides creating an opportunity in exploring good news writing, the workshop is able to instill in students a sense of responsibility to promote activities in the campus in the right way,” he said during the closing ceremony of the workshop. – (fl)
