By now, you should know how important note-taking is… It’s not only a crucial part of being a successful College student, but a skill you can take with you, wherever your career may take you.

So we took some notes from the Learning Strategy Team and their top tips for reading and note taking.

Top Tips:

  1. Get active with your reading by reading with intent and purpose!  
  2. Ask yourself questions as you read to engage deeper in yreading-note-taking-updateour material
  3. Be sure to read in preparation for your classes so you can build on the information you’ve read in your classes
  4. Explain what you’ve read to someone else to assess how much you’ve retained
  5. Keep your notes organized, dated and complete!
  6. Do not soley depend on powerpoint slides from your instructor – compliment these with your own notes
  7. Have fun with your notes and make them meaningful to you – use colour, pictures, mindmaps, etc.

For more tips and answers to some of the questions you may have, visit the Reading & Note Taking section of the Study Skills & Learning Strategies Hub.

FASTSTART brings to you FLEMING TALKS with Barbara Stegemann!


Top Game Changer CBC’s Dragons’ Den| CEO and Founder, The 7 Virtues

Barbara Stegemann’s entrepreneurial vision was formed after her best friend—a soldier—was severely wounded in Afghanistan. Understanding that supporting Afghanistan’s economy was key to building stability for its people, Stegemann created The 7 Virtues Beauty, a company that sources organic oils from countries experiencing turmoil (such as Afghanistan, Haiti the Middle East and Rwanda). Despite addressing complex global matters in her talks, Stegemann uses humor to explain how individuals can use business for good and effect change, both at home and worlds away.

Stegemann became known to millions of Canadians when she became the first woman from Atlantic Canada to land a venture-capital deal on the CBC TV show Dragons’ Den for The 7 Virtues Beauty. She went on to become the “Top Game Changer” in the history of the show for creating her social enterprise.

Watch a PREVIEW of her story here.

Social Entrepreneurship is on the rise and more companies are now addressing not only the financial bottom-line but the TRIPLE BOTTOM-LINE Social, Environmental and Financial. Unlike traditional businesses, these companies are driven by a social or an environment preservation cause and putting these before profit to create a sustainable business model for the greater good. They are challenging the way corporations work with the community and the world.

Come and get inspired and be part of what the world needs the most, CHANGE!
