Being prepared to learn is more important for your personal development than any magic insight your teacher might give (speaking from my own 20-year experience in delivering graduate-level management and strategy education to a variety of student populations).
The Modified Cornell Notetaking Method is a working example of how you might synthesize and organize a 2-hour lecture from our April 2021 Foundations training course in such a way that you get all the big ideas in a single, formatted, and organized sheet, including timestamps to key parts of the lecture for easy recall and navigation. At the same time, it acts as a great 1-page highlight of all the important topics covered in the lesson.
One of my volunteer interns put this sheet together as part of our project to leverage our ongoing, co-created workshops and bring together great questions from students. This allows us to refine our topics and insights in a focused and personal way.
My military officer students, business clients, and doctoral students of management and strategy swear by this technique. I am pleased and humbled by the opportunity to share this simple, but powerful learning approach with you in the spirit of collaborative group learning.
