A Personal Odyssey: In Pursuit of Arab Higher Education 

 David Wheeler, the editor of Al-Fanar Media, a five-year-old digital publication that began with a focus on Arab universities, reflects on what he and his fellow journalists have learned about the nature of education in the 22 Arab countries. Over time, the publication has broadened its interests to the arts, culture and all kinds of research. It has trained Arab journalists from every Arab League state with the exception of Djibouti and Comoros, and has sought to explore the effect of conflict zones on displaced and refugee youth. This talk focuses on lessons learned, the future of journalism about education, and the publication’s hopes for a more rounded form of adult literacy
