Dealing with information overload: How to set your students up for note taking success this Fall

What we covered

This Fall across North America, millions of students will walk through the (perhaps virtual) doors of lecture halls and be hit by the learner’s arch-nemesis: information overload. In our digital age, learners already have the world’s information at their fingertips. The biggest constraint to learning is not access to content, but the ability to learn from it.

Only 35% of what lecturers say is captured in average notes, and only 20% of information in those notes is retained if they aren’t reviewed. How do we help teach learners the right skills to overcome information overload in lectures? And how do we teach students the skills to help them retain all of the relevant information from their notes?

In this free webinar, we’ll be joined by a panel of disability support professionals to discuss the importance of independent note taking, and how to teach note taking skills so that your students are set up for success this Fall.
