Indonesia : ACN formation programme in social communication

Brussels, September 13th 2015 (SIGNIS Asia/SIGNIS).Asian Communication Network, together with SIGNIS ASIA and Kupang Archdiocese - Indonesia, conducted the ACN Formation Programme in Social Communication for Seminary Professors and Seminarians on September 1-5, 2015 in St. Michael Seminary Penfui - Kupang, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Indonesia. Up to 300 diocesan, Claretian and Carmelite seminarians, and five seminary professors attended the meeting.

Workshop at a glance

The proposed training programme has been planned and designed to address the communication needs of Seminary Professors and Formators. Indeed, students nowadays belong to a new generation, they belong to a digital world; they live, study and work in a highly mediated, multicultural and globalizing world. To understand them and their world, we need new methodologies and a new pedagogy in teaching and learning.

Communication is part of every aspect of life, because it has to serve society as a whole and ultimately, humankind in its entirety. It can lead to reconciliation or destruction; it can bring knowledge, truth and inspiration, or withhold knowledge and spread disinformation.

The Church is communication, and is the channel of God’s life and love for his community. In dioceses, seminaries, formation houses and parishes, the study of communication is a vital part of the mission of the church in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.

The objectives of the programme were various: from examining social communication and its role in the life of the individual, community and Church, to enabling participants to understand the new media scenario and reflect on the new trends or equipping them with communication and media skills to be effective formators of seminarians and religious.

At the end of the training, the participants were able to see the central role of Communication in the Mission of the Church, understand the power of media and its influences on people’s lives, analyze the media products or realize the need for greater attention for social communication in formation.
