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. It's now in beta testing in the Arab World and Mongolia. 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.
