We're hosting a day of free oral history training in partnership with the Borders U3A local history group! All three sessions will be practical, and “hands on”. To get the most from sessions A and B, it would be helpful if you’ve used a computer for basic tasks. (Though the course will be adjusted to suit the knowledge and experience of participants so should be suitable even for those not confident of their IT skills!).
10.00 – 13.00 A: Interactive Research Skills Workshop
13.45 – 14.30 B Preserving digital files (also relevant to the oral-history workshop)
14.30 – 16.00 C:Recording local people’s memories (ie “oral history”), includes techniques and use of equipment
The venue is the Cross Keys Pub, Northgate, Upper room.
We welcome you to one or more session(s). Places are limited and the event will be open to all – not just u3a members - so if you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know about it.
