During the first WJEC conference (2007), 25 participants representing various member organizations of the World Journalism Education Council were asked to sit down for an individual video interview. All participants were asked to talk about what they felt were the key issues facing journalism educators both in their region and worldwide. Their answers were then consolidated into the following sixteen topics. Some of the issues are global, while others are regional in nature. In total there are 40 minutes worth of insights into the issues important to journalism educators across the globe.
