The Alexander Turbull Library Oral History Centre presents this two day workshop on the essentials of oral history research.

For anyone undertaking an oral history project we recommend attending both days.

Day One: Introduction to Oral History

Date: 18 February 2012

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.

Day Two: Recording Seriously

Date: 24 March 2012

Recording Seriously builds on Day One: Introduction to Oral History, reviewing work completed and covering in more detail interview techniques, project planning and technical, ethical and legal issues. Some experience in recording or processing oral history is necessary.

Completion of an earlier Essentials course or a recent equivalent introductory course is required.
