The Center for Oral History Research offers two-session quarterly workshops for UCLA students, faculty, and staff that provide an introduction to the basics of oral history methodology. Topics covered include:
- • Interview outlines and questions
- • Effective interviewing techniques
- • Legal and ethical concerns
The first session covers general issues and skills involved in conducting an oral history, and the second session focuses on developing and refining participants' own projects and providing feedback on interview design and techniques. Members of the general public can attend the workshops on a space-available basis.
For further information, contact the center by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 310.825.4932.
Members of the general public interested in oral history training can also contact the Southwest Oral History Association or the Center for Oral and Public History at California State University, Fullerton, both of which also provide oral history workshops. Baylor University's Institute for Oral History also offers online instruction in oral history.
