Do you need advice about preparing or delivering a speech? Would you like to
videotape a rehearsal of your next presentation? The tutors in the Communication Center
can assist you with the speech preparation process.
Staffed by Communication instructors, the lab is open to faculty, staff, and students
at convenient times.
If your purpose is to record a presentation, you can have the use of an Internet-ready
smart cart to project your PowerPoint slides or play your video visual aids. A tutor
will record your presentation and review the recording with you, offering helpful
feedback. If you simply need help developing or organizing a presentation, we can
help you with this, too. The recording and the advice are absolutely free.
The Center is located in Union Hall 052. We recommend that you schedule an appointment,
but drop-ins are accommodated whenever possible.
The Center has flexible hours six days a week.
To make an appointment or cancel an existing appointment, log into Blackboard
and select FOCUS. The FOCUS link can usually be found under the "Tools" header on
the Blackboard home page.. You will be asked to confirm your appointment by then going
to your student e-mail account for verification. If you would like to talk to a speech
tutor or if you would like additional information, you may call (614) 287-5391.
