First entry on Speed reading
Workshop Tutor: Han-Na Cha
In my opinion, the speed reading is another useful workshop for students in developing and improving their learning journey. By attending this workshop, I am able to know my reading speed level and how to improve the speed. In masters level, students are required to have lots of reading on books and journals. Learning new reading techniques will enhance my reading speed and help me reading more materials to undertstand my subject better.
I found that there are three useful reading techniques which I am going to apply during my reading time. The workshop tutor have suggested to have a proper position from the reader and paper (around 30cm), use a pointer such as pencil or pen to guide us and reduce subvocalization.
I will use a pointer such as my finger or pencil to keep me more focus on my reading.
I will reduce subvocalization when I am reading the texts.
I will avoid "skip-backing" on materials that I read or try reading more slowly if the materials are new or difficult topics.
