Abstract:This article examines meaning-based education as it applies to journalism students, combining literature from participatory development, critical pedagogical and spiritual theory and praxis. Examples of the implementation of such approaches from Africa, Eastern Europe and the United States are given. The 'journalism of meaning' approach urges African journalists and journalism educators to engage in ongoing dialogues to build a foundation of faith that differing African men and women can develop their own styles of journalism, and of education. These dialogues must be based upon trust, respect and understanding. Bibliogr., notes, sum.
