The Ultimate Note-Taking Workshop

Are you studying hard, but your grades don't show it? Maybe your notes just aren't working for you. If you're looking for a way to take notes that will actually help you study - look no further. This workshop will help you learn how to take notes before, during, and after class to help reinforce course material. Leave with a game plan and a note taking technique to succeed.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe three different types of note taking techniques
  • Create a list of abbreviations to use in their notes
  • Identify at least two reasons why notetaking is important

This workshop is part of the Skills for Academic Success series which features effective strategies to advance your academic performance at GW. If you're looking for course-specific tutoring, course reviews, or resources to develop new study skills like time management and note taking, please check the Academic Commons website for short videos and other academic resources.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.

In-person attendance of this workshop is open to GW students, faculty, and staff whose GWorld allows them to tap into Gelman Library. No visitors will be allowed into Gelman to attend this workshop. If you do not have access to Gelman, please attend online.
