Asia Pacific Media Educator

Issue 15 (2004)

From the Editor

Dear Readers:

Published papers in this issue continue to focus on media education and training in the Asia Pacific. Quite a few were presented at separate conferences in 2004, one on “Asian media research” held in Singapore from Aug.6-7; and the other on “Best Practices in Online Journalism Education” held at the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Center for Journalism, Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines, Dec.9-10.

I would like to acknowledge the generous support of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in this issue. KAS founded the Asia News Network (ANN) following the Asian- German Editors Forum organized by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Manila in March 1999. ANN (www.asianewsnet.net/) comprises 14 leading English language newspapers in Asia. Details of KAS’s activities and its contributions to journalism in Asia can be viewed at www.kas-asia.org
