Consultation Worksheets
If a consultee needs credit for their consultation, you can provide them with this form to fill out. They should fill it out prior to consultations, but that doesn’t always happen… For in-person consultations, you will need to stamp the form using the DesignLab rubber stamp (in the cabinet). For virtual consultations, you need to send a confirmation email after the appointment.
Example confirmation email:
Hi [Consultee name],
Thanks for meeting with me today! Here is the email that you can share with your instructor confirming that we met. Please feel free to make a follow-up appointment if you have any additional design concerns!
Best,
[Your name]
