The speaking center offers two types of online appointments: Live Chat and Video Conference. These appointments are ideal for getting immediate feedback and answers to your public speaking questions. Live chat appointments are the best when conducted with a personal computer for laptop rather than a mobile device.
You and your consultant will be able to type messages, share drafts of your speech outlines, and make changes in real time. This type of appointment requires a consistent internet connection for the length of the appointment
These appointments are synchronous and ideal for getting feedback on the nonverbal (tone of voice, facial expression, hand gestures, etc.) aspects of your speech delivery.
Limited face-to-face appointments are available in Spring 2021. While construction continues on the Speaking Center’s permanent location, face-to-face consultations will take place in Lamar Hall 323. Masks and social distancing will be enforced according to the UM Campus Ready policies.
