GASA 2019: Reading and note-taking (Thurs)

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building, MAL B33

This event has ended.

Many students initially find it difficult to manage the quantity and complexity of academic reading that is required of them. In addition, making effective notes from your reading and in lectures is a complex activity that requires you to engage in active reading or listening, and critical thinking simultaneously.  This workshop will consider the importance of active reading strategies in managing the quantity and complexity of reading at university level. It will also discuss the purpose of note-making, the importance of using a range of active note-making techniques, and how to integrate your notes into your writing.

This workshop will repeat on Wednesday 11, Thursday 12 and Saturday 14 September. 

Please note these workshops are open to Birkbeck College students only.

The Get Ahead, Stay Ahead (GASA) series of workshops is primarily targeted at new students beginning their studies in 2019-2020, though any Birkbeck students may attend.

Study skills workshops for all students also run throughout the academic year.
