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.

    Hi Chrisa,
    I’m glad that you got something out of the workshop and that you are definitely going to adopt the cornell method. Have you got 2 or 3 other action points from this workshop that you want to focus on developing over the next 4/5 weeks?

    What would they be?- could you post them on your blog as well? I’d suggest editing this post or writing a new blog post entitled ‘initial action points for reading and notemaking’ and tag it A1_portfolio (as you’ve done with this one)

    Thanks in advance. I look forward to reading them.
