LAL offers free note-taking workshop


The Learning Assistance Lab, located on the second floor of the C-building, is offering two sessions on how to improve lecture note-taking skills.

“Some students who come to the Learning Assistance Lab have incomplete notes or notes that are not organized well enough to use,” said Colleen Baker, faculty specialist in the LAL.

“This workshop would be beneficial for any student who would like to improve his or her note-taking skills.”

The workshops will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 16. One session will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.; the second will take place from 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Both sessions are free and do not require registration.

The workshops will be held in Room C-220 in the LAL.

Krista Tomaselli, a faculty specialist in the LAL, will be teaching the sessions which will cover topics such as sorting out important material from an instructor’s lecture.

“Good notes allow you to go back and study from them,” said Ben Collins, an internationally certified student tutor at MCCC.

“The act of taking notes helps you remember stuff and succeed in difficult classes.”
