Note Taking & Strategies for Reading

During this workshop, we’ll demonstrate strategies that will help you work with information from both textbooks and lectures. You’ll learn the difference between active and passive learning and how to employ active reading strategies to further your retention. We can help you learn how to identify relevant information from reading assignments and take notes to maximize learning so you don’t wind up reading a textbook without remembering any of the information you just read.

This workshop is available online via Zoom.
