What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered participants will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this offering will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

Were you ever taught how to take notes? Even if you were, do you take notes effectively? Or are you like most of us, who look back at our notes five minutes after we've written them down and have no recollection of what they say? The practice of conventional note-taking has taught us how to be excellent transcribers, but for most of us, this is not an effective way to sit in a class or meeting and actively engage with, process and retain information.

Visual Note-taking (also known as "Sketch-noting") is a skill designed to help you spatialize and visualize information as you hear it. This skill helps with information retention, improves your brains ability to engage during the note-taking process, and it's fun! Visual Note-taking is an introduction to visual communication that will help you become more comfortable visualizing and sketching your ideas.

Disclaimer
