Event description

Description

Using a number of crime scene scenarios inside the Institute of Policing’s very own crime scene house, this interactive session considers why and how note-taking is crucial to the learning process.

In a typical crime scene investigation, it is standard police procedure to document the scene with note-taking, photography, video and sketches. Likewise, in academia, we can’t rely on our memory when needing to accurately recall what went on in a lecture, or what we have recently read in an article. However, note-taking is not as straightforward as it may seem and failing to take good notes can affect our ability to critique, synthesise knowledge and maintain academic integrity.

Working with ex-police officers, staff from Study Skills and Library Services, you will follow the evidence at the crime scene house to reveal the varied note-taking methods that can work for your different learning preferences. This session is open to all staff and students
