Oral History Interview Volunteer Training

Oral History Interview Volunteer Training

On 1 March 2016, Ming Ai held an oral history interview training for volunteers at Regent’s University London. The workshop is presented by Robert Fleming and his colleague … Robert is a curator at National Army Museum as well as one of our British Chinese Armed Forces Heritage project’s steering group members.

The workshop included a presentation on National Army Museum and an introduction to digital video camera. Robert has also taught our volunteers how to create oral history interview questions and engage interviewees during the interview. It ended with group Interview practice and feedbacks from trainers. The workshop has been very interesting, interactive, educational and beneficial for Ming-Ai’s volunteers to work on the current British Chinese Armed Forces Heritage project as well as any future project.
