University in Malaysia joins SputnikPro project - Sputnik International, 1920, 30.05.2024
Sputnik International News Agency and Radio held the first SputnikPro online masterclass for a Malaysian institution — the International Islamic University of Malaysia joined the project.
Sputnik has forged new educational ties with budding Malaysian journalists.
As part of the master class, Victoria Polikarpova, Head of Sputnik International and Sputnik India, told students of the Department of Communications the secrets of newswriting.
She talked about journalists' responsibilities when breaking new stories and how to recognize and debunk fake news.
"Do not be afraid to add your own news angle when writing a news story. Sputnik provides an alternative viewpoint which is different from the Western mainstream, or 'legacy' media, narrative," Polikarpova said.
"As the world is becoming more multipolar and multidimensional, the stories from regions other than the Anglo-Saxon world and the voices of the Global South journalists are becoming louder and more meaningful," she added.
Associate Professor Aida Mokhtar of the Department of Communications gave her impressions of the event.
"The students and staff of the International Islamic University Malaysia enjoyed the Sputnik training session," Mokhtar said. "We learned what makes a news article newsworthy, the importance of using words with suitable connotations and the importance of doing a fact check before writing news articles."
