This is the first of a two-day course. Day two is on August 26.
Alexander Turnbull Library Outreach Services is offering workshops for people considering using oral history in their work, community or personal projects. The workshops will be tutored by Judith Fyfe, oral historian and lawyer, and Lynette Shum, Oral History Adviser, Alexander Turnbull Library.
By the end of the workshop participants should have a basic understanding of how to tackle an oral history project from planning right through to archiving.
All equipment is provided and all participants receive comprehensive guides and resources.
The course is limited to 12 participants. The fee includes morning and afternoon tea.

How to plan an oral history project, choose the best equipment, achieve clear audio recordings, select informants, follow ethical procedures, develop questioning techniques, process digital oral history, and make the material available for use.
