I teach at community college, and have often encountered others talking about helping students learn to take good notes. I have never felt that I took good notes as a student. I was too busy thinking about the ideas to carefully write down good notes. Until recently, I thought my lack of skill in note-taking was a deficit. But then I read this article by Henri Picciotto. It resonated.
Now I'd like to convince my colleagues that there are better options than trying to help students take good notes in math class. But I'd like to find some research if I can.
The better options, in my opinion, include:
If we have a tutor in the class, they take the notes, and post them
for the class.
If not, the students take turns taking notes to post.
You seem to be seeking research to show there are better options
than note-taking. I can't answer the question you posed,
but you will need to overcome the evidence that note-taking
is effective. For example:
"Note-taking: A Research Roundup"
September 9, 2018.
"Whether it’s taking notes from lectures (Kiewra, 2002) or from reading (Rahmani & Sadeghi, 2011; Chang & Ku, 2014), note-taking has been shown to improve student learning. In other words, if we want our students to remember more of what they learn in our classes, it’s better to have them take notes than it is to not have them take notes."
