Drop-in help desk by Materials Platform

The Materials Platform drop-in help desk offers free advice for Aalto University students, faculty, and staff who want to improve their presentation, publication, or other aspects of their work related to research dissemination and popularization. We can give you advice on the layout, visual hierarchy, help to adopt Aalto University's visual guidelines, and answer questions related to other Materials Platform activities. Come to talk to us!

The next session is on Tuesday, 18th of February 2020 from 13:00 to 15:00 in the Learning Centre, room Arttu.

How it works:

  • No need to register or email beforehand, just drop by. If we're busy with someone else, you can either wait a bit or come by later.
  • Bring any visual work related to your research or teaching. It can be presentations, diagrams, figures, charts, or posters, or only an initial sketch. 
  • Get advice on Materials Platform events and service support, so bring a printed agenda, a list of your needs or goals, and prepare your questions.

The visit:

  • Bring a hard copy of the visual or printed event agenda you would like to discuss. In some cases, it is also good to bring a laptop.
  • Expect one-on-one consultation. The consultant will offer suggestions and recommendations that can help you to proceed with the project.
  • One session can last about 10-30 minutes.
  • You can come back for one more session to discuss the same project if needed.

What we don't do:

  • We will advise you on the changes, but we won't re-do the actual graphic or visual materials for you.
  • During those sessions, we cannot offer a comprehensive software tutorial, only some minor details of the software can be discussed.

Please note that this help desk service in its pilot phase. We welcome your constructive feedback and ideas for its development! Email us if you have any questions.

Who you will meet:
