The Technical Communication Lab believes that it is vital to communicate effectively in today’s increasingly technological, globalized, and digital world. To fulfill this mission, we serve as a resource for all undergraduate and graduate students seeking to improve their technical writing, oral communication, and data visualization skills. Part of the Whiting School of Engineering and housed in the Center for Leadership Education, we currently offer both in-person and virtual consultations for presentation practice and ESL skills. Starting in Fall 2022, we will expand to include technical writing, poster design, and data visualization consultations. Book an appointment today!

Our Services

ESL Consulting

The CLE's Technical Communication Lab offers free ESL consultations to Johns Hopkins undergraduate and graduate students. If you are a non-native speaker of English and need help with grammar, speaking skills, presentation skills, pronunciation, or idiomatic phrases, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our consultants.

Presentation Practice Sessions

Undergraduate and graduate students seeking feedback on their presentations are encouraged to sign up for presentation practice sessions with teaching assistant Mohamad Elgendi. Mohamad holds sessions both virtually over Zoom and in person in Wyman N115. During the session, presenters can receive feedback on a presentation or slide deck, brainstorm a topic, or discuss presentation best practices.
