Method for Creating Zettels during Lectures
I just wanted to share a method I've adopted for taking notes during class lectures that has proved to be helpful. Basically, I have adapted the format of the Cornell Method of note taking (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornell_Notes), and adopted it to organize the future creation of Zettels.
The notes are written by hand on standard 8.5x11 paper that I fold in half (so I have four functional half sheets to utilize per paper). I use the "recall" column for my anticipated Zettel title and then the notes section for corresponding information for the future Zettel. The summary section gets used for my own summary of the information in the "notes" section and becomes the basis for a structure note.
In the past I have tried using actual slips of paper, and although it works great for books, I've found that this process is more conducive during lecture style learning (at least for me). When I'm done, all I have do do is create individual Zettels from the information and connect them to the structure note and any other connections in my archive.
How do you take notes during lectures? Any other methods out there?
