Description

G'day — if you're a working journalist, or journalism student, then we'd love to hear from you!

Now in its second year, Google and The Walkley Foundation are working together to bring the latest digital skills to newsrooms and universities.

Our shared mission is to create a sustainable future for journalists and newsrooms through innovation and professional development. We aim to provide free training sessions to 4,000 students, journalists and editors across Australia and New Zealand.

If you're working or studying in the Adelaide area, please join us for a morning covering the latest tools, tips, tricks and insights.

Please bring your laptop in order to participate in some hands-on exercises, if possible.
