Study Skills Workshop: Strategies for Smarter Note-Taking

We all know we should be taking notes in class—after all, when we head home at night, those notes are the tangible things we take with us—but many of us don't really know how to take effective notes or how to use the notes we do take. This hour-long session will help you change all that, giving you tips, strategies, and techniques for better note-taking that will help you succeed at The Academy but also—and more importantly—out in the rest of the world, too.
