Getting Help

How to ask for Help – And Get it.

Everyone, yes everyone, needs to ask for help with various (technical) problems, lab exercises, research problems, etc.

But what’s the problem?¬† Most people don’t know how to approach solving a problem or how to ask for help with a technical problem. There isn’t one right or wrong way to do this. The materials on this page present one possible way of doing it, and by doing it in a way they will get help quicker, and will learn more about their problem (language, applications, tool, etc) along the way, which in turn will make them better at solving future problems.

Here I give some slides, video presentation and two check lists to support this topic.
