The Dow Jones News Fund Multimedia Training Academy is a hands-on “boot camp” that captures real stories from the community around UT El Paso. Teams of trainees have covered agriculture stories on the far eastern edge of El Paso county, participated in ride-alongs with the U.S. Border Patrol, documented the craft of bootmaking, navigated the fiesta atmosphere of swap meets and even captured a cross-border cattle drive in southern New Mexico. Those are just a few of the assignments and exercises our teams have undertaken. See a collection of our stories over the years in the section below.
