Well Today our research team was introduced to the technical equipment that they will be using to conduct the 50 interviews. The session started with a presentation on how to conduct an oral archiving interview. Top tips included the use of open questions, how to put your interviewee at ease, noise pollution issues, consent forms a good fail safe check list. Paul Long then took over to go through the recording equipment the team will be using. The group then had the opportunity to get familiar with the equipment and I have to say although at first there was some nervousness  by the end of the session we had certainly found a few key technicians within our group. I can't believe our interviews start on Monday, the training period has flown by and what an amazing group of volunteers we have!
