2nd Backpack Journalism Workshop in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY, 5 May 2010 — My second Backpack Journalism Workshop at Tec de Monterrey in Mexico City ended with this group photo.

The Tec de Monterrey, which has dozens of branch campuses around Mexico, is the first institution in Latin America (to my knowledge) that has embraced the model that we refer to as backpack journalism, or video journalism.

Students attending our workshops came from diverse backgrounds, professions and institutions including the United Nations, local universities and local Mexican media outlets.

I conducted both workshops in Spanish.
