Visit to Google HQ in London
Students from OICP, both undergraduate and postgraduate, visited Google HQ in London on Friday 4 November 2022. The visit was hosted by the Head of UK Publishers for Google, David McMurtrie, who is also on our Journalism Advisory Board. From OICP Alexandra Shakespeare and Sarah Franklin led the field trip.
This was the fourth and final in a series of Google News Initiative workshops presented by Google Teaching Fellow and video journalist Caroline Scott. Well done to the quiz winner Maud Haugland, who earned a Google Pixel watch, whilst everybody came away with a branded notepad, pen, and mobile pop socket. The students had a tour of HQ, which has epic views across London and is also home to an original Dr Who Dalek.
