Competence-based Education in Media and Communications

News Monday, 09:00 10-05-2021

While the traditional teaching method focuses on transferring knowledge from teachers to the learners, competence-based education motivates them to acquire, create and translate knowledge into reality effectively. Competence-based education is to train the capacity and active thinking so the learners know how to make the best out of other people’s knowledge and apply what they have learnt into real-life situations. Based on the concept and experiences of competence-based education, the author proposes some recommendations to standardize the media and communication programs at the Academy of Journalism and Communication in particular and in the country in general.

Factors affecting contents of press - media in the context of globalization

Abstract: The press and media play the central role in the context of globalization. The information in the press and media becomes important to all areas of life. Research on journalism, global communication in social and international relations adds important insights to the study of politics and sociology. The increasingly global influence of contents requires the press- media to understand and embrace global trends. Besides, the press-media also face difficulties in connecting information and adapting to cultural diversity.
