Sorry folks, this session is booked out.
The Alexander Turnbull Library is offering our popular introductory oral history workshops in Wellington. These workshops are for people considering using oral history in their work, community or personal projects.
Tutors: Megan Hutching, oral historian, and Lynette Shum, Oral History Adviser.
All equipment is provided and participants receive comprehensive resources.
This is the first day of a two-day course. Essentials of oral history day two will be on 23 June. The course is limited to 12 participants (first in first served!).
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 and develop questioning techniques.
Bring a recorder if you have one you intend to use for recording. Exercises to be completed before Day Two will be discussed.
Workshops elsewhere and Māori-English bilingual courses are also available. For the bilingual courses, please contact ATLOutreach@dia.govt.nz
