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.
