Less is more

In her excellent article ‘Take note as another learning discipline slides away’ on the THE, Tara Brabazon shares not one, not two, but three valuable lessons:

  1. How to edit an assignment – instruction to students: read the guide, read it again, put into practice.
  2. How the dependency on prefabricated notes and slides is impacting on the students’ ability to take notes – instruction to all presenters: less is more.
  3. That outcomes based learning doesn’t guarantee, or actually foster, learning.
