UiTM wants to produce ethical and professional bloggers."Currently, we do have blogging studies in our curriculum and this will be enhanced further by introducing a course on blog writing. I feel that the Communication and Media Studies Faculty is ready to conduct the course and I fully support this move (to introduce blog writing course) as it is time for us to help produce bloggers who are not only professionals, but with ethics," (UiTM vice chancellor Prof Ibrahim Abu Shah) told a media conference after opening a seminar on Media and the 2008 General Election, here Monday.
NST On-line's Dewan Dispatches: Is KJ the young and restless "Prince of Darkness"?, quotes the SIL proposing that "bloggers be given the same professional training as mainstream media journalists". Read that here.
As quite a seasoned journo, may I suggest that mainstream media journalists and editors be given a quick course on blogging (not the one UiTM is offering). It'd remind them of some of the things they should be doing as journalists and editors.
