Try making your own lecture notes

If you haven't already looked at Note-making styles and Making notes in lectures, you may like to do this before the activity.


In this activity, you can listen to part of a lecture for first-year undergraduate students and practise taking notes.

You can choose from two lectures: Dr Alana Lentin's lecture, Race: Conflict and Change or Dr Paul Craze's lecture, Evolution and Ecology of Life.

Click on the tabs to choose the lecture and click the Play button to start the audio and view the PowerPoint slides.

You can practise making notes using the on-screen text editor or by hand. Once you are done, click on the Finished Taking Notes button and see how you did.
