First entry on Reading and Note–making
Summarizing what has been said and done in this workshop:
- We were initially separated in groups, so it was mainly interactive, group work-based
- We introduced ourselves and each group presented the difficulties we usually have during reading and notemaking
- After trying to define various reading and note-making techiniques (skimming, scanning, mindmap, Cornell ect), the tutor gave us information on how those techniques actually work and we discussed what would probably be suitable for each of us
- We had further discussion on how we could manage our time effectively using different types of reading and note-making
At first I didn't think I would earn much from this workshop, but having been introduced to the Cornell method, I am definitely going to adopt it. I am overall very satisfied with the workshop, the tutor's performance, as well as the group communication.
