This one day training event will offer a basic introduction to all aspects in the life cycle of an oral history project from commissioning to disseminating and archiving. It will introduce concepts of best practice in terms of ethical and legal considerations and provide an opportunity for participants to raise questions and concerns about past or future projects that they have been involved in. As these later points are issues that are relevant to all parts of the life cycle we will leave room for these discussions within each section detailed below.
