The Beginners course conducted by the Oral History Association of Australia (WA Branch) provides the foundations for those wishing to set up an oral history project whether it be for a family history, a community history or for the purposes of a research project. Courses will be run on the following Saturdays in 2010: 8 May; 28 August and 13 November.
There are very clear guidelines that should be followed when conducting oral history interviews. The Beginners course covers the importance of ethical practice and informed consent when undertaking interviews. The nitty gritty of putting your project together is discussed including:
• setting up your project;
• ethics, defamation and the importance of clear guidelines and consent forms;
• setting up the interview;
• contacting the Interviewee;
• interview preparation and research;
• the interview process and what is involved;
• transcribing and finalising the interview.
Participants have the opportunity to conduct a practice interview in pairs and to discuss the interview experience. Where possible, practice is given on digital recording equipment.
Please note that this is a beginners’ course and not a digital equipment workshop. Digital workshops will be run on the following dates in 2010: 19 March; 4 June; 20 September and 19 November.
