Are you a PhD student using oral history?

 

Questionnaire for PhD Students using oral history

 

The OHS Higher Education group is exploring ways of supporting PhD students and their supervisors. As part of this process, we are conducting a survey to find out about students’ experiences of supervision. If you are using oral history in your doctoral research, please help us by filling out our questionnaire:

Are you using oral history in your PhD research?

At which University are you registered? (optional)

In which department are you based? (optional)

In which year of your doctoral studies are you? 1234+

How many supervisors do you have?

Does either your first or second supervisor have experience of using oral history in their own research?

Had you had any experience of using oral history before beginning your doctoral research?

Have you attended any courses or training on aspects of oral history? If yes, could you describe these, please?

Were they helpful or not? How?

If you have discussed your team of examiners with your supervisor(s), is it planned that one of these should be an oral historian?

How happy are you with the overall PhD supervision you have received so far?

How happy are you with the PhD supervision specifically related to oral history that you have received so far?

Is there anything that you found particularly helpful that you would recommend to other students and supervisors?

What, if anything, could be improved in the supervision you have received so far?

Is there any area of oral history research in which you would like to receive teaching/training?

Is there any else you would like to mention in relation to your PhD supervision?
