Developing Effective Note-Taking Strategies – Online Synchronous Workshop

  • This event has passed.

March 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST


This workshop will be jointly led by Jane Freeman, Director of GCAC, and Jeff Newman, College Librarian, New College

Graduate students take notes for two main reasons: to absorb new material they want to learn, and to keep track of important material for later reference. In this workshop we consider the varying benefits of different formats for note taking (by hand, in Word, and/or using a citation management software), and strategies for using spreadsheets to compare and analyze what you read. We will explore ways in which a citation management package like Zotero or Mendeley can be used to take, store, and manage notes and related materials for a variety of tasks. We will encourage you to reflect on your current note-taking habits and on what new strategies might help you at your current stage of study. We also encourage you to become aware of the wonderful resources available through U of T’s libraries for students who are developing and refining their research skills.

This is the first of 4 workshops in the Productive Partnerships for Graduate Writers workshop series. 

This workshop will be offered live online and will not be recorded. Please register to receive a link to join the workshop at the scheduled time. If you are not able to register online or if you are not a currently registered U of T graduate student, please contact Sarah at sgs.gcac@utoronto.ca and she will register you manually.
