AHEAD 2017 Session | Addressing the Shortcomings of Note-Taking Support.

Learn how to save time and money on note-taking support while transforming learning outcomes for your students, with Kim Oschenbein (Director, Academic Support Center, Maryville College; AHEAD 2017 Program Co-Chair).

When: July 19, 12.45 - 1.45 pm EST

Where: AHEAD Conference 2017

Type: Lunch & Learn Session


Session Description

Does providing peer notetakers eat up time and budget at your institution? Is there a mad rush at the start of each semester to find students willing to help out? When your note takers actually turn notes in are they often incomplete or illegible?

Over the course of this Lunch & Learn Session, you’ll hear how Kim Oschenbein (Director, Academic Support Center, Maryville College; AHEAD 2017 Program Co-Chair) addressed these issues by replacing peer note takers with Sonocent software for note-taking.

Kim will walk you through the steps she took when trialling Sonocent. She’ll explain how the software helped her students overcome the issues they face with note taking. And she’ll talk about how she’s now making it available to the college’s veterans.

Includes a software demonstration and details of how you can trial Sonocent for free.


Learning Objectives

• Typical shortcomings of traditional note-taking support

• Solutions offered by Sonocent for both students and support staff
