Follow–up on Reading and Note–making

Follow-up to A1_Portfolio_Reading and Note–making from Natalia's blog

Dear Han-na

with a huge delay, I would like to continue with my blogging on the progress in reading and note-making.

As for the action points, for the next 4 weeks in this exam term, I would like to set 3 specific action points which I hope I will find useful for my revision.

1. I will choose one subject on which I want to practise Mind mapping. I have also downloaded into my pc a mindmapping programme.

2. When revising, I prefer creating my own notes from the lecture slides. I will choose one subject where I will use Cornell Note-Making method. I know that this is mainly for taking the notes in the lecture, but I think it might also be beneficial for creating revision notes - especially the summary at the bottom of the page. Or I was thinking about adjusting the system, eg. creating the summary after each topic.

3. My revision requires lot of reading. Therefore, I would like to improve my reading skills. In the notes we were given after the workshop, there are several hints for increasing reading skills. In particular: take regular breaks, print the materials off, don't multitask, after the reading, make notes of what you have rear and vary what you read. I believe that not only will such practices have a positive effect on my reading speed, but also it will speed up my revision in overall.

Thank you Han-na for reading the entry. The update on my progress will follow soon.

Regards,
Natalia

A1_Portfolio_Reading and Note–making

Hi

Last Wednesday (26.10.2011) I attended a workshop from academic skills portfolio - Reading and Note-making. The two-hour workshop was full of important hints and advice on how to study more efficiently and with ease.

As far as I can say, I'm already using most of the things mentioned on the workshop. However, this session assured me that the methods I use are correct and suggested some improvements in brainstorming for essays.

I am particularly interested in spider diagram which I hope will help me with elaborating my thoughts. Therefore, for the next few weeks I'm planning to implement spider diagrams into my note-making. Hopefully, by the end of the term I will have had no problems with sturcturing and creating complex essays.
