In May 2016, all members of the FamCam Collecting Team were asked to attend an oral history workshop. This workshop was facilitated by Luis Van Isschot (University of Toronto) and Grace Dyer Jalea (Ward Museum). It included an introduction to oral history and to FamCam's approach to oral history methods; a short presentation about obtaining informed consent for oral history interviews; and activities that helped participants to develop interviewing skills. This workshop also gave members of the Collecting Team the opportunity to discuss topics such as: emotional and psychological support; representation of interviewees' stories; and videography techniques.
Presenters: Luis Van Isschot, Gracia Dyer Jalea, Thy Phu, Deepali Dewan, and James Kinistino
