Google News Initiative digital workshops are back for another year! Join us for the first of 12 sessions in the Sydney CBD.

One of the biggest challenges facing all news organisations today is distinguishing what is real. From identifying altered imagery and manipulated video to identifying and stopping the spread of falsehoods this session will examine the full range of misinformation, disinformation and outright lies that circulate.

The first session will run in the Sydney CBD by trainer Mridula Amin who will introduce you to a suite of Google and non-Google tools to help you become an expert verifier.

The training session will run from 11:00am-12:30pm and a light lunch will be served afterwards giving you the opportunity to network with colleagues.
