RTC-KorPhil Davao SMAC reorganizes team; conducts learning session to enhance documentation

The RTC-KorPhil Davao have convened on February 11 and 14, 2022 its Social Marketing and Advocacy Committee (SMAC) team to talk on its new structure and to review its documentation procedure. 

On February 11 at the Center’s Mini-Theater, newly-minted focal Mr. Mario dela Cerna accepted officially the key responsibility to man the SMAC team, short after the release of Office Order 11 series of 2022 signed by TESDA XI Regional Director Engr. Lorenzo G. Macapili, DTE. 

In the same day, former-SMAC-focal-now-assistant-focal Engr. Jeric F. Bilita gave lectures on newswriting with topics about definition, elements, qualities, types and structure of news. Additional topics include qualities of a news writer and pitfalls of newswriting. 

Engr. Bilita highlighted the crucial role of newswriting as one of the ways to document the operations of the Training Center. 

“News writing is a form of documentation. Documentation serves as one of the important evidences, attachments, or proofs to evaluate if targets are achieved in the Office Performance Commitment and Review (OPCR) or in the Institutional Development Plan (IDP)”, he said. 

In the newswriting session, ten members of the SMAC team acquired knowledge on how to establish a headline, lead, body and tail of a news article. 

On Valentine’s Day, February 14, the SMAC team continued to learn other documentation activities such as photography using a Mobile Phone and a Digital Single-Flex Lens (DSLR) camera. 

Mr. dela Cerna presented techniques in capturing photos. He said pictures are essential supplements for a well-documented event as it does not only enhance the story but it also provided proof that events really happened since the readers can see it on their eyes. 

With the new learning gained, the SMAC team hoped to document all events in the Training Center leaving no stories untold. Currently, the team is composed of an overall Focal, Asst. Focal, Managing Editor, 2 In-Center News Editors, 2 Off-Center News Editors, 2 Feature Editors, 2 Layout Artists, 1 Webpage Developer and selected students of Diploma in Information Technology (DIT).

Significant Outcome/Result of the Event
