Many students find keeping up with the readings and lecture notes at university to be a real challenge. Many students also find that they need to adopt new reading and note-taking strategies as they advance in their studies, and when then start to study in new fields. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss some reading and note-taking strategies that students can try as well as ways of adapting these strategies to fit individual needs and preferences.
