This is a great tutorial to help your students prepare and make their first interview.

Here are the main steps:

  1. Prepare- establish why you want to perform the interview
  2. Research- perform some research on the topic you want to cover in the interview. This is to ensure you get the most out of the person and not simply gather information you already know and is easily available. In the context of the GPO for example find out if they have any stories from 1916 that relate to the GPO.
  3. Prepare the equipment- ensure you have your camera fully charged and working ready for the interview.
  4. Prepare the location- do a dummy run through yourself to ensure the sound and light are adequate in the location you choose.
  5. Questions- write up your list of questions and group the questions to help with the flow of the interview. If you go off topic but are covering interesting material, be adaptable. Go with the flow once it's relevant. Try to avoid interrupting the interviewee when they are answering questions.
  6. The Interview- Sit or stand beside the camera so it looks like the interviewee is looking at the camera. Engage with the interviewee so they know you are interested in what they are saying. Nod, smile , be friendly.


Here is a fun video that we think summarises how to perform an interview that was created by Riley Hooper
