Operationalising Note–Taking techniques
Operationalising Note-Taking Techniques
I have just handed in two assignments this morning and I have a great self of achievement and confidence because I could put the techniques I had learnt in practice.
1- Instead of wasting a whole day doing my references after finishing doing my assignment, I gained an extra day that I used efficiently in editing my assignment as well as my referenicing. This gave me great confidence not to mention that it served ti improve the quality of my essay.
2-Having had a focus on making notes while writing, I did the literature reading bearing in mind only the necessary points I wanted to include in my notes in response to the assginment question. Therefore, I had succinct and well-focused notes.
3- I have to say that writing my notes using Mind-mapping had a washback, or a revision impact after finishing reading for each chapter because tyoing on the computer increases the awareness of accuracy and flow of coherent ideas. In additionm I improved the way I organised the notes in different levels and categories in the process.
I would recommend talking the Note-taking workshop for its huge cumulative benefits that resulted in revamping my writing skills, as you can see form my first and last entries, and subsequently producing a better coherent and well-organised essay...........
