Developing Effective Hand-Written Notes in 1st-Year University Classes

Sat, Nov 13, 12:45-13:45 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 21

Effective note-taking by hand plays an integral role when students must research and discuss complex topics. However, first-year university students may lack experience in preparing and using notes effectively. Also, they may not be aware of specific benefits that hand-written notes can offer. In this presentation, methodologies used to help students develop note-taking skills for communication and reflection, as well as ways that hand-written notes can be used in online classes, will be discussed.
