Note taking

  1. 1. Note-taking in Lectures and Seminars Language & Culture Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages http://sites.tamuc.edu/innovations/files/2014/02/Class-notes.jpg
  2. 2. Goals • List the reasons why students should take notes • Evaluate which information is useful and important and which is not • Organise lecture or reading notes using a mind- mapping tool • Demonstrate good note taking practice in the context of your subject area • Understand how to effectively store and review your notes http://education.exeter.ac.uk/dll/studyskills/note_taking_skills.htm
  3. 3. Importance of Good note-taking • enables you to avoid unintentional plagiarism • - helps you to focus on what is important in what you are reading or hearing • - helps you to understand and remember material, and make connections • - helps you to structure the assignments you're researching • - provides a personal record of what you've learnt (more useful than your lecturer's or friends' notes) and records your questions and ideas • - sets you up for exam revision http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/studyadvice/StudyResources/Reading/sta-effective.aspx
  4. 4. Some drawbacks • note-taking can distract you from listening to lectures • - note-taking can put additional stress on those who do not write naturally • - you can end up with so many notes that you have to spend twice the amount of time going through them again to find out the important points! http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/studyadvice/StudyResources/Reading/sta-effective.aspx

  8. 8. Before the lecture... • Think about the title and outline description of the lecture and how this connects to the rest of the module • Think about what you know about the topic already, and what you expect or hope to learn from the lecture • If it's a completely new topic, try to get a basic idea of what it's about beforehand - read an introductory paragraph from a textbook or encyclopaedia, for instance. http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/studyadvice/StudyResources/Reading/sta- effective.aspx
  9. 9. During the lecture... • Listen for clues to the shape or structure of the lecture to help you to organise your notes, for instance: "Today we shall be looking at…" "I am going to discuss three main aspects…" "Now I want to move on to…" "I do want to emphasise…" "To sum up…" • Identify key words - for instance, notice when words or phrases are being repeated. Underline or circle in your notes any words that seem to be really significant. Are there particular words that seem to sum up the overall message? (For instance, 'oppression' or 'conflict' or 'solution'.) • Be an active listener - not a sponge - try to connect what is being said to what you already know (this is where the preparation bit comes in handy!). Ask yourself, do I agree? How does it fit in with what I already knew? Am I surprised ? If not, why not? How did she get to that conclusion? http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/studyadvice/StudyResources/Reading/sta- effective.aspx
  10. 10. • After the lecture... • Put some time aside soon after the lecture to sit somewhere quiet and consider what you have just learnt. Summarise and write what you think were the main points in a few sentences. Add anything you need or want to find out more about, and any questions it raised in your mind. • Follow up anything that you think really important - research the answers yourself, discuss it with a friend, make a list of questions to raise if you have a seminar on the topic, ask your lecturer if you're really confused and can't find the answers elsewhere. • Then file your notes away carefully so you can find them when you need them for assignments or revision. http://www.reading.ac.uk/internal/studyadvice/StudyResources/Reading/sta- effective.aspx
