Update to Action Point 3 of Reading and note–making

Follow-up to First entry on Reading and note–making from David's blog

My third action point was to reduce the amount and wrote and make my notes more concise. In the last few weeks since the workshop on reading and note-making I have vastly improved my note-making.

In the last weeks leading up to term and the start of term, I have made my notes for seminars or general work shorter and to the point. I have also introduced techniques such as abbreviations and key words in order to shorten my notes so that they do not become intimidating to read over. I have also taken up the technique of using arrows as short cuts and links.

I have also found that shortening my notes has allowed more space on the page for my own thoughts in conjuction with what I have read. This has allowed me to make my notes much more effective as not only do they include the thoughts and concepts of the author but also my own thoughts on the general topic.

    Hi David,

    It’s good to read you have been successful in implementing your third action point. Did you find it difficult to make these changes and has it got easy as you have done it more?

    Your next blog will be your final one for A1. For this, I suggest you look back at your original action points and reflect on your overall learning from these… what went well or not so well and what you will continue to do in future, as a result of treeing out the different methods.

    I shall look forward to reading it.

    best wishes,
