Follow-up to First entry on Reading and Note–making from Chrisa's blog

1. Start using the Cornell method for Note Making

2. Practice on skim reading, as it seems very practical

3. Try to manage my time more effectively, when it comes to reading

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.
