guess what will be on exam
professor may say things that are not in the textbook
Do I write in complete sentences?
Do I have a format for my notes?
Do I use abbreviations and symbols?
OUTLINE
MIND MAP
CORNELL
Are my notes clear and not confusing?
Did I get down the most important information and it's subpoints?
use numbers and letters to connect items
use different levels, items on same level are associated
ADVANTAGES
CAN BE CLEAR
YOU CAN EASILY ADD NOTES
USEFUL WHEN THERE'S A CLEAR STRUCTURE
DISADVANTAGES
CAN BE BORING TO LOOK AT/HARD TO READ
RISK REPETITION
VISUAL
WRITE MAIN TOPIC IN CENTER, ADD MAIN IDEAS
ADVANTAGES
EASY & QUICK TO MAKE
VISUALLY EASY TO REMEMBER & UNDERSTAND
NOT IN ANY ORDER
LESS LIKELY TO WRITE TOO MUCH
INTERESTING TO LOOK AT
LINK NEW & EXISTING KNOWLEDGE
DISADVANTAGES
MAY BE HARD TO DECIDE WHAT ORDER POINTS NEED TO BE
HARD TO EXPAND ONCE SPACE IS USED UP
PAGE DIVIDED INTO 3 SECTIONS:
COMMENTS
NOTES
SUMMARY
ADVANTAGES
DESIGNED FOR LECTURE NOTE TAKING
PROVIDES WAY OF ORGANIZING NOTES
GENERATES REVISION
DISADVANTAGES
VISUALLY NOT STIMULATING
TEMPTING TO WRITE TOO MUCH
MAY TAKE TIME TO LEARN TO USE EFFECTIVELY
COURSE STRUCTURE
LECTURE: PROFESSOR TALKS ABOUT A TOPIC
WORKSHOPS: SMALLER CLASS WITH A TA, DISCUSS MATERIAL
LAB: HANDS ON
ONLINE: DISCUSSION BOARDS & CONTENT ON BLACKBOARD
CLASS SIZE
AUDITORIUM CLASSES 100+ STUDENTS
CAN BE DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE WITH INSTRUCTOR
INSTRUCTOR PRESENTS A LOT OF INFO IN ONE CLASS SESSION
CAN BE INTIMIDATING TO ASK QUESTIONS OR GIVE COMMENTS
COURSE EXPECTATIONS
CAN VARY ON THE CLASS
MAY BE REQUIRED TO TAKE NOTES, PARTICIPATE IN DISCUSSIONS, ASK QUESTIONS, BRING PRINTED .PDF OR POWERPOINTS TO CLASS, COMPLETE TEXTBOOK READING
FOCUS OF EXAMS (BOOK / LECTURE / BOTH)
TIPS FOR CLASSES:
DON'T SKIP CLASS!!!!
READ BEFORE COMING TO CLASS
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL MATERIALS FOR CLASS
ACTIVE LISTENING
MAINTAIN INTEREST
MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR
DON'T TUNE THE SPEAKER OUT
MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS BEING SAID
LISTEN TO VERBAL QUES
TAKE NOTES, BUT DON'T MINDLESSLY WRITE
9 BAD LISTENING HABITS
CALLING THE SUBJECT BORING: ONLY BORING PEOPLE, NOT SUBJECTS
CRITICIZING THE SPEAKER: WHAT IS SAID MATTERS, NOT HOW
GETTING OVERSTIMULATED: UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU REACT
LISTENING ONLY FOR FACTS: MAKE CONNECTIONS
TRY TO OUTLINE EVERYTHING: BE FLEXIBLE WITH NOTES
FAKING ATTENTION: LISTENING IS WORK / DYNAMIC
DISTRACTION: DON'T GIVE IN (SQUIRMING, DOODLING, SHUFFLING PAPERS, NEIGHBORS ETC.) YOU BECOME A DISTRACTION
CHOOSING ONLY WHAT'S EASY: WHAT'S WORTH LEARNING IS USUALLY HARD
WASTING TIME: ANTICIPATE NEXT POINT, IDENTIFY SUPPORTING MATERIAL, RECAP DURING BREAKS
DURING
BEFORE
AFTER
DO SOME BACKGROUND READING
PUT THE MATERIAL IN PERSPECTIVE
LOOK AT HANDOUTS / NOTES / POWERPOINTS
GET THERE EARLY
KEEP TRACK OF YOUR NOTES
DON'T TRY TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN
NOTE WHAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND / WRITE DOWN QUESTIONS
DON'T LEAVE EARLY
PUT PHONE ON VIBRATE, DON'T TALK TO FRIENDS
LOOK AT NOTES:
DID YOU GET ALL MAIN POINTS?
HOW DO THE POINTS RELATE?
WHAT THINGS WERE CLARIFIED?
WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED NEXT?
SUMMARIZE
WRITE DOWN QUESTIONS
lectures, group discussion, radio, email, speaking, web chat
sort things out by talking out loud / talking to yourself
most classes taught this way
preference for text-based input (textbooks, reports, papers, manuals) and output (essays, assignments)
powerpoint, internet (Google, Wikipedia), lists, diaries, dictionaries, quotes
demonstrations, simulations, videos and movies of real things, case studies, practice and applications
Concrete: can be grasped, held, tasted, felt
value own experiences over those of others
VISUAL
preference for info in maps, charts, diagrams, graphs
doesn't include photographs
does include designs, white space, patterns, shapes
ways to connect words
MULTIMODAL
TWO KINDS:
those who are flexible in communication switch modes depending on what they are working with
those that need to take in information in all of their preferred modes
takes longer to get info, are slower, but get deeper and broader understanding
EMPHASIZE KEY PHRASES, TERMS, TITLES BY CIRCLING, HIGHLIGHTING, DIFFERENT COLORS OF INK
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO ADD THINGS (QUESTIONS, EXTRA NOTES, MESSAGES TO YOURSELF)
USE ABBREVIATIONS, DEVELOP YOUR OWN VOCABULARY OF SYMBOLS
IF NOTES ARE MESSY, REDO THEM, BUT NOT OVER AND OVER
USING A LAPTOP / IPAD
PROS:
can edit powerpoints, word documents in class
can produce neater notes
searchable text
fewer pieces of paper, less organization
CONS:
big source of distraction
sometimes it's easier to draw diagrams, do problems by hand
battery / outlets
computer breaks, may lose notes
