The Speaking Lab at Augsburg College serves all Augsburg students who want guidance or feedback on public presentations. We have resources to help with all aspects of oral communication, including developing a central idea, organization, use of support materials, strategic use of language, effective use of visual aids, and delivery. If you have an oral presentation for any course, we are there to help you succeed!
The Speaking Lab offers a range of services helpful in any stage of the presentation process. When you come to the lab, please bring a copy of the presentation assignment and any work you have already done.
We can help with:
- Idea development
