  • 2. <ul><ul><ul><li>In this session on note taking and note making we will cover: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Why are notes important? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Difficulties with note taking and note making </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Differences between the two </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Consider your learning style in relation to the two </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Various strategies for taking notes </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  • 3. <ul><li>Why are notes important? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Notes form the basis of your exam revision, essays and assignments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is important to get good note taking and note making from the beginning as it is very difficult to catch up later on with notes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extremely important resource for students for assignment preparation and exam revision. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To engage/ interact with the material being studied </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To formulate ideas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To remember and make sense of material </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For revision purposes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For reviewing and reformulating ideas </li></ul></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>Difficulties with note taking and note making </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requires several different tasks at once. Including listening comprehension; reading comprehension; information processing; organisation, flow and structure of work; clarity of writing; and writing speed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You do not need to write everything down! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most important thing is to get the key points down. There is a logical sequence to a lecture or a reading so follow it! This ties into the course outline, reading lists, lecture handouts and Moodle notes because the themes and topics are outlined for you. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All students regardless of disability find note taking and note making a daunting task. But practice, knowing your learning style and how to recognise what is important to write down will make this an easier task for you as an independent and capable university student. </li></ul></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>Differences between note taking and note making </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Note taking involves taking notes from speech (e.g. lectures, videos, audio tape and dictation). This process is subject to a time limit and therefore may be stressful. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Note making (usually from reading or rewriting notes) is not subject to the same time constraints. Note making is not as stressful as you are in control of time. Note making is all about reorganising the material into your own thoughts and words so you will remember them better. </li></ul></ul>
  • 6. <ul><li>Notes and your learning style </li></ul><ul><li>Auditory learner </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Record lecture (if allowed) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Record yourself talking about the lecture afterwards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Discuss lecture topic with friends and listen for signal words and clues during the lecture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Examples of these clues are “An important theory is… “The main points are…. “or “Next we will consider ….” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Visual learner </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Concept maps for holisitic thinkers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Linear notes for analytical thinkers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wall charts, diagrams and use colour </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Kinaesthetic learner </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Active learning and may want to use a combination of the above methods </li></ul></ul>
  • 7. <ul><li>Various strategies for note taking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prepare in advance for the lecture by looking your course outline, reading list and Moodle. Look at summary of last week’s lecture notes so you can link the theme from one week to the next. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be punctual, as the beginning of the lecture is when most lecturers will provide the signposts and key words. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Listen to your lecturer summing up at the end of the lecture to ensure you have all the points listed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If notes are put on Moodle before the lecture, be sure to print them out and edit them for note taking. Leave space for your writing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Always attend class, second hand notes are difficult to understand. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a different notebook for each module. Use colour coding of notebooks. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At the top of the first page write the date and the number of the lecture week. If you do not know date, check your mobile phone. </li></ul></ul>
  • 8. <ul><li>Various strategies for note taking (cont’d) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Only write on one side of the paper and double space the lines. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use shorthand abbreviations or symbols for common words. Make your own for words in your subject. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leave out unnecessary words </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you cannot spell the word you want to write down, highlight it or circle it, bold or put in larger print and then you can go back after the lecture to correct it. Do not get stuck on trying to spell a word during a lecture, you will miss the content. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If notes are not on Moodle, then you have to copy down the overheads or boardwork. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sit next to a good note taker as it is easier to copy from someone next to you than from the overhead. Be sure to ask first! </li></ul></ul>
  • 9. <ul><li>Various strategies for note making </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Write source references and page numbers in the margins. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a dictionary to hand to check unfamiliar words. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have your personal glossary of subject terms so you can refer to it and add to it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Write up notes as soon as possible after the lecture so you can remember them. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Add important information and summarise for revision and retention. </li></ul></ul>
  • 10. <ul><ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You should know why notes are important. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You should know the difficulties with note taking and note making </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You should know the differences between the two. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You should know how your learning style relates to note taking and note making. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You should have some new strategies on the two. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
