Event description

Description

Join us in Burnie, Tasmania for a free digital journalism training workshop


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

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.

The Google News Initiative Trainers Network brings together an accomplished team from a variety of industry backgrounds and expertise, including working journalists, academics and media instructors and educators.

Over the year, they’ll be working with newsrooms, universities, and freelancers to share their knowledge and skills, and help journalists grow and succeed.

We're proud to be part of Grow with Google to provide a free training event. If you're working or studying in the Burnie area — or even if you're not, and you can get there — please join us for a morning covering the latest tools, tips, tricks and insights. Coffee, tea and a light meal will be provided after the workshop.

If possible, please bring your laptop in order to participate in some hands-on exercises.
