Incorporate study in all your learning activities

Listening

  • Prepare for lecture/podcast.
  • Can’t do all the prior reading? Look at title, skim course notes.
  • Sit where there are no distractions
  • Immediately before, ‘prime’ by brainstorming the topic.
  • Listen for cues: ‘the most important …’, ‘in summary…’ and signals e.g., repetition, modifications in tone, pitch and speed
  • Taking notes in lectures helps listening.
