In an effort to increase the number of article contributors to the University website and maintain its updated content, the ICT Office of the University, in partnership with the Public Relations, Information, and Media Office (PRIMO), and select faculty members of the College of Arts and Humanities (CAH), organized a one-day event on news writing with basic photography titled “Writing for the Web” on November 19, 2014. The activity was participated in by College Secretaries, Planning Officers, and other personnel from among the Colleges and Offices in the PSU main campus.
Topics dwelled on basic article writing, grammar review, writing for the web, and basic photography. These were presented by speakers from the CAH and the PRIMO who are experts in their fields. Ms. Shirley Dangan, a faculty from CAH who was the speaker in the morning, taught and reviewed the participants on how to write articles that are web friendly. At 1 o’clock in the afternoon, Mr. Mark Anthony Villa-Agustin, also faculty of CAH and a new personnel with part time assignment at the PRIMO, discussed the do’s and don’ts of writing articles for the web. And, at 3 o’clock, the session was concluded by a short topic on basic photography delivered by Mr. Baltazar Bantillo, also a faculty of CAH and who also works as photographer and layout artist at the PRIMO.
Mr. Venzon L. Limpiada, the University ICT Director sends his thanks to all of those of actively participated. The ICT office hopes to conduct the same and similar activity for the representatives of the PSU Extramural Centers in the 2015. (Limpiada, 2014)
