In the first series this semester of “Friday’s Excellence Sessions”, which is organised by the Faculty of Mass Communication and Fine Arts at Al-Maaref University, Dr. Ali Kassir, the co-instructor of Seminar in Journalism and Digital Media hosted the journalist Imad Marmal on March 9.
In the session titled, "Researching for TV production and Writing for Press", Marmal conveyed to the students his long practical experience in both media genres TV and newspaper. He pointed to the techniques that contribute to the combination of the two professions at the same time, and he also pointed to the potential of developing journalistic skills in both TV presenting and journalism.
During the session, Mr Marmal talked about the most joyful and disgusting moments in his career journey, and how he dealt with their impacts on him.
At the end of the session, the students have had the opportunity to ask Mr Marmal a number of questions. Mr Marmal responded to the students’ questions and queries in an interactive atmosphere.
