#lobocamp ends with panels on design, photography, reporting

Day two of the bootcamp was just as busy and fun for students who learned how to edit photos, design pages, cover the crime beat and automate their beat to never miss a tip. Students left feeling energized and ready to try some new techniques at the Lobo and in class this semester.
Students Connor Coleman and Sergio Jimenez used InDesign to practice laying out a newspaper page on deadline during Sunday’s panel on design.

NM journos give tips on using tech in reporting

We kicked off our bootcamp Friday with an online panel about using the Internet for reporting. Thanks to our panel of reporters and web folks, and to those who watched online.

The panelists were Jolie McCollough, the web designer/developer at the Albuquerque Journal, Lucas Peerman, digital editor for the Las Cruces Sun-News, Lindsey Anderson, who covers education and regional issues for the Las Cruces Sun-News and Trip Jennings, the executive director of New Mexico In Depth.

See links to examples they cited here, where we’ll be uploading information from other presenters throughout the weekend. See you soon!
