Quick Overview

This site gives a quick overview of techniques to apply in class to help you succeed. It gives you tips on how what to expect and prepare for before class, what to listen for during the lecture, and what to do after class to help with your notes. Some of the tips are to sit towards the front of the class, listen and watch for clues from the instructor on what is an important topic, and to review your notes after class.

This gave me several ideas for listening and note-taking. I especially like the suggestions for preparing to listening before the class starts: read assignments, think ahead, sit where you can see and hear clearly and avoid distractions. These are some of the things I have unconsciously tried to do ,but not all of them. Now I can be a little more focused by incorporating a few more of the suggestions in this article.

Just since I have come back to the classroom. I have figured out to sit in the front of the room. It helps me to see and hear without having distractions from other students in the room.

Trying to pay attention to cues from the teacher is also important. Watch their eye and body movements for clues was an interesting strategy.

This is a great explanation of how you can use your listening and note taking skill to the maximum potential. The part that stands out most to me is the Listening checklist. The steps before, during, and after will come in useful as I further my education. I believe this is site explains the steps to taking effective notes while listening well and I will use it in the future.
