Welcome to the opening of Guidance Corner, University students and staff!
During the opening week you can experience and get to know activities organized at Guidance Corner throughout the year. You can update your CV and job application, join an exercise session, try on a virtual reality headset, check how much you know about our University or Moodle, discuss open science, take a selfie or write your greetings to the parliamentary elections on the Student Union’s photo wall.
There’s also a chance to express your thoughts and opinions on what your dream Guidance Corner would look like in the future!
This year’s Tutor Adventure is organised on Thursday April 4th, at 1 pm – 8 pm, on the City Centre campus. Almost all of the university’s 700 tutors participate in the Adventure.
The Tutor Adventure of HYY and UH Student Services consists of touring checkpoints in teams to learn tutoring skills and receive information about the services and activities of the University, the Student Union and other interest groups. Three of the checkpoints are located in the Main Library at the Kaisa House (on the 3rd, 5th and 7th floor).
Please notice, that the Tutor Adventure may cause a little extra noise in the library.
A couple of events are being held on the 2nd floor of the Campus Library (UbiKampus) in March:
On Friday March 15 a Hackathon will take over the Ubikampus for the entire day, and
On Friday March 22 there will be a Catalysts Coding Contest at 14.30-21.
The Library is now asking your feedback about organizing events: what kind of events you find suitable for the Library’s 2nd floor? At which times and on which areas of the Library would you prefer the events to be held?
Self-archiving? Yes, it concerns you if you are a researcher or a lecturer at the University of Helsinki. Publishing Master Thesis openly? Yes, it concerns you if you are a student at the University of Helsinki. Discounts on APCs ? Yes, you can benefit, if you have a position at the University of Helsinki. Publishing research articles in Open Access journals? Yes, it concerns you if your research is funded by national / European research councils or funding bodies (Plan S).
Come and ask anything – Open Science Kiosks are open:
How open science affects the visibility and accessibility of your study? What should you as a member of the University of Helsinki community know about open access publishing and services offered by the library? Which are the discounts of author processing charges (APC’s) you are entitled to? Come, ask and discuss open science themes with the experts of the library.
We will also give you some new tips on self-archiving and advice how to promote Open Access now more easily than before. Self-archiving creates openness!
