A4: Memory and Sense
Tutor was Ceri Marriott.
Take advantage of synaesthesia of memory by associating words with colours/sounds/whatever – give yourself more mental hooks to connect ideas with
This one has so far gone differently to how I expected – I’m remembering things based on the order of introduction and internal links instead of anything else. Haven’t really noticed myself remembering more, either. Rather odd, really. I can remember some of the colour associations I made, but not the context (which is unhelpful), and I can’t remember any of the sound ones. I was expecting this to do /something/, and least :/. I’ll keep trying it – mayhap it’s the newness of the technique.
Try to remember things based on what was said, as opposed to what was written
Paying more attention to what’s actually being said, there’s a large contrast – some lecturers don’t narrate much of anything, some say somewhat more than they write. I still don’t focus for all of a spoken paragraph if nothing is written, which is something I hope to fix, but I least I notice something else is actually being said, now.
