Public Speaking Center adapts to COVID-19 restrictions

The Public Speaking Center is available to support students for their communications needs, despite changes to how students receive that support, the center’s director said.

COVID-19 has altered how students typically get assistance from tutors at the Public Speaking Center. What used to be live, in-person sessions, have transitioned to the virtual setting students have experienced since Spring Quarter.

Tutors also learning during corona shutdown

Tutoring during quarantine has been different for tutors than previous quarters at Highline.

Highline’s Spring Quarter 2020 has been completely virtual. Tutors operate within a fixed schedule on Zoom in order to accommodate students during quarantine.
