Seminar title: The Write Way
1. Appropriate questions (research, moderation, hosting)
I think for this section I’ll give the Write Way a D. From the handouts and while the host was introducing the guest, I felt that they did quite good at doing their research in order to provide the guest’s information and backgrounds clearly. The host was quite good at entertaining and interviewing the guest. Other than that, the host also did quite a good job to by asking questions that us the audience might want to know. I think the most useful question that the host asked was about how they get notice by people out there.
2. Guest relevance to the topic
For this section I think they worth a High.D. The guest that they have invited are all professions in the journalist industry, they are either a Writer, Editor, or well known blogger, which totally qualified to be one of the guest speaker for this seminar. Although some of the guest does not have lots of experience in this industry, but they’ve got a lot to say, things they said are all useful for us for future use. Especially about how to get yourself notice, and also about the hard time of getting a job, which are quite useful and something that we must know if we want to be a journalist.
3. Quality of seminar facilitation (including set-up, staging, refreshments, audience interaction, flow, technical eg sound, IT)
For this section I will be giving them a D. They did a very good job on setting up the stage and also the sound and visual. The host and the guest were able to interact well with the audience. Their refreshment was quite good as well, the way they serve the refreshment was good to, instead of putting them all together on the table they serve it by walking around the room, which I think it is good, so that people wont have to squeeze and get the food.
4. Seminar Content
As for the seminar content, I will be giving a High.D. The seminar content suits the title of the seminar, especially when they were talking about how to get notice, and how useful Twitter/social network is. I realized through social network other than knowing more friends or keep on track about friends, we can use it to show our own ability and talent.
