EMAIL
- If you send me an email, make sure it complies with the following do’s and dont’s
-- Do’s
--- Send your email from your institutional address (i.e. the @studenti.unipd.it domain)
--- Write in English, if you are studying English
--- provide a subject heading for your message
--- begin your message with “Dear Professor Gesuato,”
--- provide contextualizing information, namely: your academic role (i.e. student); your degree course; the course of mine that is relevant to you: the one you are attending at the moment, the one you attended in the past (specify when); any other piece of information relevant to your academic status (e.g. are you an Erasmus student currently in Spain?)
--- indicate, as clearly as possible, the reason for writing (e.g. a goal you want to achieve, a difficulty you are facing, a doubt you have...) and what exactly you would like from me
--- if you need to mention other university lecturers, preface their last/family name with the appropriate title (e.g. Dr. Scott; Prof. Musacchio)
--- end your message with “Kind regards,” “Best regards,” or “Best,”
--- sign your message with your first/given and last/family name, and your student I.D. number;
--- if this is NOT your first message to me, also include any other previous email exchanges below your signature line (else I might not fully remember/understand what you are talking about)
--- remember to be polite, courteous and formal throughout.

-- Don’t’s
--- ask for information that requires a long reply (e.g. How can I prepare for your course?); come to my office hours instead
--- ask for information that requires me to be in my office to be able to answer it (e.g. Did I make mistakes in the first exercise of my exam paper dated XXXX?); come to my office hours instead, or call me during my office hours
--- don’t ask for obvious and/or unpredictable information (e.g. Are you going to give an exam in June?; Will you be holding office hours next week?): something that happens by default needs not be confirmed; at the same time, no-one knows what the future has in store, so, even if, by default, I can be reasonably expected to give an exam in June or to hold my office hours next week, as usual, if I should fall sick, I might not show up;
-- don't ask for reassurance about circumstances that are expected to be valid by default (e.g. "Can I come and see my exam paper during office hours?"). It is indeed during office hours that students can see me, not at other times or at other places, unless special -- and motivated -- arrangements need to be made; and no appointment is necessary, since my office hours are on a drop-in basis;
-- don’t ask for information that is already, or that is going to be, available elsewhere (e.g. exam dates will be posted publicly; if they are not, it means they have not been fixed yet; possible changes to office hours are also announced on the web)

- Do NOT expect a reply unless you comply with ALL of the above.
