This course will provide you with a small toolkit of techniques that you can apply to help you to manage the piles of information, papers, letters and articles that clutter your desk and mind. It will help you to make notes quickly and in a way that your mind may process more readily. After the course, if you practice and use the techniques, you may improve your recall of information, improve your note-taking and enhance your creativity.
During the workshop you will:
- Understand how using tools such as mindmaps relate to the way your mind deals with information . Examine how note-taking can restrict your ability to process information . Learn how to use graphical and mapping techniques that can aid your creativity and research
