Asia Pacific Media Educator


C. M. Mercado


The communication education and training programs is highly competitive relative to other social science programs in the ASEAN region. This is the impression I gathered when I visited some universities in the ASEAN in 1992. However, the rapid changes in the region suggest that we should strive to make our communication curricula more responsive to the realities in the area. The rapid socioeconomic, geopolitical and techno-cultural changes that we have increasingly experienced in the ASEAN community suggest the urgent need to re-tool our communication programs in line with the emerging cybercommunity.
