Through learning-by-doing, as well as critical and analytical thinking, the 3 workshops placed emphasis on the idea that successful communication starts with clear goals and objectives and bearing in mind their target audiences , especially in today’s world where information is readily available on social media. Therefore, the content needs to be both appealing and engaging. While improving their communication skills, participants reflected on the relevant social issues in their communities.
“Before I met the participants, I worried a lot about the process because, firstly, I was not familiar with them and, secondly, I thought they could be facing some challenges to take into consideration such as personality, language barriers, lack of resources etc. I was only hoping they would have fun engaging in the hands-on process, focusing more on the processes rather than the end products. Surprisingly, it turned out better than I expected. Participants produced amazing results. They have something to talk about and produce tangible communication products. They also exchanged ideas openly with their peers. They were able to put what they learned into practice.”
