Presentation Skill Consultations

The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) now offers personalized presentation skills consultations. These consultations can provide you with tools and feedback to improve the organization and delivery of your presentations. A TA Consultant will observe you presenting in class or in a practice session and then meet to discuss the presentation. This can ensure clarity and organization of ideas, enhance audience understanding, reduce anxiety about giving presentations, and promote student participation. Presentation skills consultations can help you enhance your in-class presentations, conference presentations, job talks, or other presentations. Learn more by visiting the CEE's website.
