The session will explore different ways of teaching investigative reporting. Mark Hunter will talk about his work in the Middle East in Mongolia to create an IJ curriculum for Arab-language universities and the goal to create a curriculum that either professors who have no investigative journalism experience or reporters with no teaching experience can use as a foundation text.

Vincent Wang will describe the history of bringing investigative reporting into the curriculum and how it is possible to run a campus-based, investigative journalism oriented newspaper in China and overall problems of doing investigative journalism at Chinese Universities.
