WHERE: Cairns Convention Centre, Hall B, Sheridan St & Wharf St, Cairns QLD 4870

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 Cairns 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 at the event.

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


ABOUT YOUR TRAINER

Anne Kruger

Anne Kruger was presenter and reporter for one of Australia’s most iconic programs Landline, before leaving to further her studies in economics and financial news reporting.

In 2014 she began working as a presenter and producer at Bloomberg TV in Hong Kong, but in that same year the territory was hit by a wave of misinformation and disinformation during Occupy Central – and Anne’s focus changed dramatically.

She is passionate about working to better understand and combat the phenomenon. As an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Hong Kong, Anne collaborated with external stakeholders including digital open source verification technologists Meedan, and founded the Cyber News Verification Lab.

Anne’s innovative verification education projects have won international research awards. At HKU, Anne also contextualized news literacy ‘train the trainer courses’, consulted for UNESCO Asia, and led research projects with Google News Labs partners. She is an assessor at the International Fact-Checking Network (Poynter) and has over two decades’ experience as an international journalist and anchor at CNN International, Bloomberg TV and the ABC.

Anne returned to her home city of Brisbane in 2018 as an ABC Chief of Staff, and has recently completed her PhD in social media verification education.
