Google News Training: Searching for News During COVID-19
May 18, 3:30 pm to 5 pm ET, online
The Society of Professional Journalists and Google News Initiative host this hands-on workshop, taking a deep dive into a handful of free Google Tools, including Google Scholar and YouTube. The focus will be on COVID-19, to assist reporters in understanding the virus that causes the disease and issues surrounding the pandemic — useful information, because even if reporters aren't reporting on the public health crisis itself, some aspect of it affects subject matter of coverage. Journalists will come away with strategies to help research accurately and efficiently, as well as training in tools that will help tell more interactive stories.
