Morton College Language Arts instructor and Collegian co-advisor Michele Mohr was among 13 college and university instructors from across the U.S. to attend Borderzine’s Fifth Annual Dow Jones Multimedia Training Academy at the University of Texas El-Paso.

The educators participated in an intensive week-long immersion into multimedia storytelling that included training on recording audio and video that culminated in  an assignment to report and produce a variety of multimedia pieces for the Borderzine: Reporting Across Fronteras online magazine.

Ms. Mohr plans to use the knowledge she gained at the Training Academy to incorporate multimedia storytelling into the Journalism 101 course this fall and train Morton College Collegian student reporters on the use of audio and video recording to bolster the newspaper’s online news coverage.
