Note taking and note making

Note-taking and note-making

  • Note-taking involves writing down most of what you hear or read without processing the information

  • Note-making is more active and forces you to think, as you have to select, analyse and summarising what you hear or read


Benefits of note making

Benefits of note-making

  • Forces you to think

  • Helps you pay attention

  • Helps your understanding

  • Helps you concentrate

  • Helps you remember more

  • Provides a permanent record

  • Facilitates learning


Techniques linear notes

Techniques – linear notes

  • Make notes in the form of lists or phrases


Mindmapping

Mindmapping

  • Uses arrows and circles to connect key words /phrases and should create a spreading pattern  


Highlighting annotating and underlining

Highlighting, annotating and underlining

  • Involves drawing lines under information, highlighting with a coloured pen, or writing notes in the margin

  • Allows you to pick up the meaning of text when you refer back to it

  • Try not to highlight everything!

  • You usually need to make written notes too


Summarising

Summarising

  • Bringing together notes you’ve already made to make a new, shorter version

  • Less likely to commit plagiarism

  • Abbreviating words can speed up the process


Tips for note making

Tips for note making

  • Label notes clearly, and note full source info – eg book, author, publisher and place of publication, page numbers etc

  • Deciding what to note depends on what you already know and what your assignment question is

  • Put quotation marks around anything you’ve copied exactly from a book


Making notes from lectures

Making notes from lectures

  • Make sure you’re prepared beforehand - know the topic of the session and note down any questions you have before the session

  • It’s more important to understand what’s being said than making notes

  • Try not to write down everything

  • Use headings

  • Ask questions if unclear

  • Don’t switch off if you get a handout

  • Review your notes as soon as possible afterwards


Have you got enough notes

Have you got enough notes?

  • Roughly the word count of a task should be doubled when writing notes ege a 1500 word essay should have 3,000 words of notes

  • You might make more notes than you use – don’t worry if you don’t use them all – better to be relevant with what you do write

  • Keep essay question or topic in mind when writing and using notes
