The Presenter Center

Did you know that specially trained Writing Center consultants are now available to help you with your oral presentations through Zoom?

The Writing Center’s Presenter Center offers free, one-on-one consultations with individuals or groups giving presentations in any setting, from classes to conferences, and for any purpose, from business pitches to wedding toasts. From beginning an outline of your speech to putting the final touches on your presentation, the Presenter Center is available to assist you in the creative process of presenting your work.

This year, students have the option to choose either synchronous or asynchronous consultations. To sign up, simply follow these steps:

For a synchronous session (i.e. delivering your presentation and receiving feedback in real time):

  1. Visit our online appointment scheduler
  2. Once you have reached the main menu, select “Presenter Center” from the location dropdown.
  3. Schedule your appointment for your preferred time.
  4. Be prepared to screen share any visual aids (including PowerPoints or Prezis) during your appointment.
  5. Use the Zoom link your consultant sends and chat with your consultant about your presentation.

For an asynchronous session (i.e. pre-recording your presentation and receiving written feedback from a consultant):

  1. Visit our online appointment scheduler
  2. Once you have reached the main menu, select “Presenter Center” from the location dropdown.
  3. Choose a slot. In the “What would you like to work on?” section of the sign-up form, write “Asynchronous Presentation” and include a link to a private Youtube video of your presentation. If you need help uploading the video to Youtube, click on the following link: https://strangershow.com/how-to-upload-private-video-on-youtube/). Also, be sure to keep the length of the video under 20 minutes.
  4. A consultant will watch your video and send you feedback within 24 hours of your appointment slot.

Presentations exist at the intersection of intellectual and physical communication. Our attentive consultants can provide a welcoming and constructive practice audience as you work through both the writing and presenting processes.
