This website is quite helpful, because it explains the different ways that an instructor could potentially lecture within the classroom. By knowing these lecture styles, the student can adjust his or her note-taking to the style. It will also help the student when organizing notes.
An improvement that I believe would be helpful to the student is to provide examples of what the notes could look like for each learning style. The website simply provides an explanation, but no examples.
On another part of the site, it suggested that students prepare for note-taking before class, take notes during class, and then review notes after class. I think this would be helpful for students to stay focused and organized. It's always easier to understand a lecture if reading and preparation have happened before class begins.
Notetaking by the Prof's style of lecture!

This info is great! I have never given any thought to the lecture style of a professor. How the information is presented gives great indication to their style, thus how I could/should take notes. Six different Styles are given. Recognizing how will alleviate some stress, as more attention and focus can be given to the what of the lecture.
