This is exciting! The very first blogging or new media event in my own school! :mrgreen:

The College of Liberal Arts Student Council of De La Salle University – Dasmarinas is organizing a seminar for students about new media in particular the basics of: blogging, podcasting, vidcasting and how it could spark the flames of ‘citizen journalism’ among the students of DLSUD.

The seminar entitled: CITIZEN JOURNALISM: THE ADVENT OF NEW MEDIA will be held on November 23, 2007 Friday, 1pm to 3pm at the Julian Felipe Hall, College of Liberal Arts, De La Salle University – Dasmarinas.

The CLA-Student Council is seeking partners in making this project succeed. They are in the lookout for sponsors for the said seminar which is based on the following rationale and topics:

As the new age of media arises, many have been adjusting to the change and demand of this field. Many disciplines have been engaging in this field any many has been using this to express one self. As new media is now being used by different people thru social media services (multiply, friendster, Digg, Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, etc), many don’t now what these so-called “social media” are and its potentials. This seminar aims to answer all possible questions that one may ask about new media, what it is and what can be done with it.
