You know the saying - building lifelong skills helps someone out much more in the long-run than providing a temporary fix. Yet departments keep giving students fish. Our question is why?

The fish? Provided notes

By providing students with notes from a peer, we’re robbing them of the core benefits of independent note taking. Research has shown that taking notes significantly improves retention.*

By teaching students to take notes effectively, you’re giving them a skill that will reduce their dependence on others and improve their learning.

Reduce admin burden

Providing notes costs valuable time and energy

Improve learning

The act of taking notes has been shown to improve learning by multiple studies

Develop student independence

Students receiving notes are dependent on someone else for their learning, undermining equity and creating compliance headaches

Lower costs

Arranging notes for eligible students is an expensive process, and bills can stack up pretty quick
