The Oral History Centre of the Alexander Turnbull Library is offering workshops for people considering using oral history in their work, community or personal projects. This workshop will be tutored by oral historian, Megan Hutching and Lynette Shum, Oral History Adviser, Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington.
By the end of the workshop participants should have a basic understanding of how to record an oral history interview, and what to do with it afterwards.
The course is limited to 12 participants (first in first served!). The fee includes morning and afternoon tea. You will need to bring your own lunch, or there are cafes reasonably close by.
Day one: An introduction to oral history methodology. How to plan an oral history project, choose the best equipment, achieve clear audio recordings, select informants, follow ethical procedures, develop questioning techniques, process oral history and make the material available for use. Bring a recorder if you have one you intend to use for recording. Exercises to be completed before Day Two will be discussed.
