Media and communication students, faculty, scholars, professionals, and enthusiasts from various parts of the country are set to gather at the annual Philippine College Radio Congress, happening on November 26-28, 2019 at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman.
Now on its fourth year, PCRC 2019, with the theme “Back to Basics,” aims to re-inculcate the fundamental principles and skills that a responsible, knowledgeable, and equipped media practitioner should possess in a rapidly evolving and innovating world.
The Congress will feature lectures on broadcast ethics, history, management, as well as creative and hands-on sessions on voice acting, college radio newsroom, and acoustics and recording. Master classes on teaching ethics and on OBE-dizing communication and media curriculum have also been designed for teachers and educators who will be attending this year’s Congress.
PCRC is an annual national academic congress that discusses about current trends, new knowledge and skills, and developing technologies in media. PCRC has offered various lectures, hands-on workshops, fora, and interactive activities by practitioners in the industry and the academe since its inaugural year in 2016. The Congress is organized by the UP Department of Broadcast Communication, CHED Center of Excellence in Broadcasting, and DZUP 1602, the official AM radio station of UP Diliman.
The Congress was initially conceptualized to be a platform where participants may be able to share and strengthen their advocacy on community building, education, and information dissemination with other higher education institutions from all over the Philippines. The holding of the first PCRC in 2016 led to the immediate realization of a need to organize and form an association of college radios and media schools which can maximize the potential and capacities of radio as a continuously evolving instrument that can provoke change.
PCRC 2019 is co-presented by the UP Office of the President, UP Diliman Office of the Chancellor, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, and Manila Broadcasting Company, and is endorsed by CHED.
