Speech Lab

The Speech Lab offers academic support to any Brookdale student enrolled in a Speech Communication course. It is staffed by Speech Department Learning Assistants, who also teach Speech Communication classes. The Speech Lab helps students with all aspects of the speech preparation process, including:

  • Topic Selection
  • Research
  • Source Citation
  • Organizing & Outlining the Speech
  • Visual Aids
  • Delivery Skills

The Speech Lab has a computer room where students may work on their speech research, outlining, and visual aids.

Students are encouraged to schedule appointments by contacting any of the Speech Department Learning Assistants. (Students without appointments may attempt to drop-in. Drop-in appointments are taken on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.) Students may use the computer room without an appointment.

Students can schedule rehearsal time in one of the Speech Communication classrooms in Larrison Hall. The rooms are available Monday to Thursday (4:30-6 PM) and Tuesday and Thursday (12-1PM), and may be reserved by calling one of the Speech Learning Assistants.

Throughout the semester the Learning Assistants hold Workshops on specific aspects of the speech preparation process, which will be posted.
