Our guest speaker from Konrad Adenauer Stiftung

Every Friday, the Department of Media and Communication (DMC) invites guest speaker from different places including governmental and non-governmental organization to share their experiences with it’s students from year I to year IV. This morning, we have a great honor that Dr. Stefan Friedrich, a team leader of Konrad Adenauer Stifung, came to give a presentation about the foundation and answer some questions from the students related to the political situation in Cambodia.

The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) is a political foundation. In Germany, 16 regional offices and two conference centers offer a wide variety of civic education conferences and events. Their offices abroad are in charge of more than 200 projects in more than 120 countries.

Since one of my friend wrote about what we had discussed in this morning meeting, I would like to give a floor to him. Please CLICK HERE to know what he has written.

14/10/2010: Closing Ceremony of “Reporting for Radio Course”


Today, we are celebrating the closing ceremony of our intensive course on Reporting for Radio in the presence of German Ambassador, DMC acting head, and our trainers, Thorsten Karg and Kyle James.

In the occasion, Dr. Wolfgang Moser, a German Ambassador, has encouraged us by saying that journalism is very important in democratic society and he also gives us some suggestions that we, as journalists, have to be aware of what we are doing, how far we can go, what to report and what not to report, and also need to take care for our sources of information.

Since I step into journalism field in late 2008, I have to admit that this is my first time to know about Reporting for Radio and I was very lucky to have participated in the  one-month intensive course on this subject. It was also the luck to have two trainers from a Germany’s international broadcaster, Deutsche Welle, staying with us and guiding us throughout the workshop.

I started to know the differences between writing news for print media and writing news for radio broadcasting.
