SERDANG, 20 Mei – In conjunction with Bookscapes 2016 Programme, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Centre of Co-curriculum and Student Development held a forum, entitled “Seluas Samudera, Sesempit Denai” (An Endless, Narrow Trail) which saw the participation of UPM students and members of the public to explore related issues concerning the social media.
Programme advisor, Ahmad Qadri Basri said, this was the first time that the centre had organized such a forum which was aimed at giving positive exposure related to current issues to UPM students and the public.
“These efforts provide the opportunity and space for undergraduates to learn and understand the use of social media while studying the process of organizing a programme in campus,” he said.
Director of Bookscapes 2016 Programme, Nurain Shahira Mohd Razali, meanwhile, said UPM students who were doing the entrepreneurship co-curriculum course will undergo a special university programme at the international level to Bali, Indonesia, this October.
“This international programme is expected to have that positive impact on students where they will possess that high intellectual quality and other positive traits to respond to the call by UPM Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datin Paduka Dr. Aini Ideris that students’ programmes be internationalized,” she said.
The programme, opened by Ahmad Qadri, was held with the cooperation and sponsorship of Aqademi, Wan Shasha Shawls and Ok Po Project.
