final follow up of note taking

Follow-up to 2nd follow up of note taking from Elliot's blog

  • Review notes within 24 hrs of taking them

this whilst seeming simply does help to re-enforce the information from the lecture whilst also lets me correct any mistkes i made while it is still fresh and thus prevents having a mistake and look over it later and then not understanding what it was meant to mean - happens far to often with my dyslexia

very similar to that written above, re-enfores information rather than it coming in and out before you even know about it. on top of this makes life so much easier than trying to work out a typo later down the line. in a nutshell: simple but effective.

  • Read lecture power points ahead of lectures for note taking will be easier

similar to last time i am still finding this useful for obvious reasons as it keeps you ahead that little bit so the lectures arent completely new information and thus are easier to follow

forgot to do this on a few occasions and it emphasised its usefulness as you've pre read the slides you can focus much more on what the speaker is actually saying rather than reading and listening as this is rarely successful

i have also found:

  • Skim articles before close reading if i have a lot to go through

once again i have found this section very useful when it comes to researching for my essays, even more so when you have tight deadlines such as last term and coming up this term where i have 3 essays all due on the same day.

haven't had any essays since so hasn't been as effective in an obvious way, however i am going to astart my 3 essays all due on the same day in the week coming so im sure this will once again be a useful tactic

1st follow up of note taking

Follow-up to first workshop – note–making/taking from Elliot's blog

i have been trying out my 4 aciton points over the last 3 weeks and have found:

  • Review notes within 24 hrs of taking them
  • Read lecture power points ahead of lectures for note taking will be easier

very useful so far in terms of keeping ahead of the game with my note taking and correctig any spelling etc. however i will now be using the next week to assess if i think it also helps cement the infomation to a higher extent.

i have also found:

  • Skim articles before close reading if i have a lot to go through

useful in certain circamstances such as when reading for research prior an essay, however not so useful before simply reading for seminars - however i will continue this and see how it goes.

and finally i have not found:

  • Try out the cornell method when using paper for notes (i use a laptop in lectures)

useful as i think i dont not take enough notes on paper and think the simple linearf style is best for me so will no longer be using this as an action point.

first workshop – note–making/taking

Went to my frist for shop yesterday and from there i have decided to give the WSPA a go; although i havent done the core workshop yet. i undertook the note-making/taking workshop which was useful in some aspects.

For the this workshop i am going to try 4 action points over the next 5 weeks, blogging again at 2/3 weeks to keep you informed on my progress and then a final blog about this workshop. my action points:

  • Review notes within 24 hrs of taking them
  • Read lecture power points ahead of lectures for note taking will be easier
  • Try out the cornell method when using paper for notes (i use a laptop in lectures)
  • Skim articles before close reading if i have a lot to go through

These i hope to achieve over the 5 weeks possibly dropping one or so if i feel they arent working for me after 2 weeks.
