Notetaking for better learning and assessments

This workshop will introduce students to the under-estimated skill of note-creation. It will cover taking notes in a variety of situations: in lectures, seminars and support meetings and when reading for assignments. Developing an effective approach to taking, organising and revisiting your notes can improve your classwork, assignments and exam revision. This workshop will consider both traditional and digital approaches to note-taking.
