Note taking is not a skill that students arrive at college with. In fact, 66% of students don’t believe they can use their notes to study and prepare for exams.

This is Aaron Holmes’ experience at MiraCosta College. Often students arriving from K-12 are so used to having a peer notetaker that they’ve never learned how to take notes. Driving student independence is a big priority for Student Accessibility Services at MiraCosta - so how do they help students learn the important skill of note taking?

In this free webinar Aaron Holmes from MiraCosta College will discuss:

  • Why promoting independence is a priority for them
  • Why Glean is a great tool for students with poor note taking skills
  • How peer notes doesn’t prepare students for life beyond college
  • Why they loved using Glean and the outcomes for students so much that they’ve decided to upgrade to Glean for Education
