***Best practices for getting in touch with your professor (e.g. me)***
Please consider that, IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS, A REPLY TO YOUR QUERY IS NOT GUARANTEED.

0) When getting in touch with your professor, write your queries in English! This is a good way to improve your writing skills.

1) Before sending an email, make sure that the information you are looking for is not to be found somewhere else (check other sources, e.g. the Syllabus, Moodle).

2) Instead of sending an email, post your questions in Moodle: some of your peers might want to ask the same question too! By posting your questions in Moodle, information will be shared with the class.

3) When sending an email, use your Unipd account: this is to avoid the spam filter, and also to avoid your professor skipping over your email, in case it has been sent from an unknown account.

4) When writing an email, use a meaningful and clear subject line including your course and degree program details: this is very important, as your professor probably teaches multiple classes. By using a well-titled subject line, your professor will know immediately what to look up in order to answer your query.

5) Always use a greeting form (e.g. Dear Professor + last name / Dear Dr + last name) and your signature (Kind regards / Best regards / Best wishes / Sincerely + your first and last name).

6) Briefly state the reason why you are writing, by offering relevant information, and send attachments and screenshots if necessary (e.g. in case your query is about an assignment or article, or if you have problems using Moodle, etc.).

7) Try to be as concise as possible, but don't forget to add a touch of politeness to your message!

8) Before sending your email, read it over and run spell check! If necessary, ask someone else to proofread it.

9) After you send your email, leave enough time for a reply: your professor might need a few days to find the piece of information you are looking for, or s/he might not access his/her email account every day.

10) Once you receive a reply from your professor, acknowledge it by just writing “Thank you” (your well-titled subject line will make the context clear), or expand a bit more if necessary. However, if you think your problem has not been solved, ask for an appointment during your professor’s office hours.
