Note Taking Enhancements for Information Systems Courses
In introductory information systems courses students learn, primarily on their own, through reading the textbook and instructor lectures; both of these techniques are ineffective for student success. In this paper, “guided notes” are introduced as a way for engaging students in the reading of the textbook and the lecture. Guided notes have been shown to allow students to become actively engaged in the course and take more complete and accurate notes (Baker and Lombardi 1985); this, in turn, improves their chances for success in the course (Baker and Lombardi 1985). Informal survey results from Systems Analysis and Design courses are used to show that guided notes have had a positive impact on student success.
