Introduction to note making

One of the most valuable skills you need to develop at university is the ability to make notes effectively. Good skills in taking and making notes will help you, as an active learner, to organise, categorise and recall information you can use when completing assignments or revising for exams. You can experiment with different strategies to find those which best suit your purpose and learning style.

You will find information here about taking notes during lectures and making notes after lectures, as well as from written texts. You will also learn about different techniques such as paraphrasing, annotation and diagrams. Some examples of different layouts you can use to organise your notes are available for you to explore.

If you would like further information, please contact staff from the Academic Language and Learning Success Program (ALLSP), who run free workshops for internal and external students.
