The Keils provided a mini-workshop for the Laguna Woods Video Club titled, “Digital Oral History Methodology” in May 2017. Here is the article from Videogram, their e-newsletter from the June 2017 edition.

Cindy & Jennifer presented “Digital Oral History Methodology” at the 2017 Southwest Oral History Association Conference in Tempe, AZ in April. This panel explained how the pre-interview and post-production stages are integral parts of the project. Technology can be enhanced to make the interviews better and adapted for the online viewer. Collection management skills can be used with any project and can aid anyone interested in digitizing their project. This presentation explained mainstream and project specific tools used throughout projects.

Jennifer created the poster session for the Southwest Oral History Association at the Center for Public and Oral History at CSU, Fullerton on April 30th, 2016. We shared our “Over the Bridge” Oral History project.
