Danilo Baylen, Erin Duckett

This presentation describes and discusses ways of improving comprehension, retention and recall of concepts in introductory Biology courses using multiple note taking strategies. Using color-coded notebooks (blue, yellow or green), students were asked to employ one of the note taking strategies (traditional, concept mapping, or visual mapping) in creating study guides for each chapter included in the course assessment. Relationships between a specific note taking strategy and student performance in multiple end-of-unit assessments were investigated. This presentation will engage interested audience through the sharing of experiences based on data collected during a 14-week term. Presenters discuss the challenges experienced from data collection and analysis. This presentation session will be beneficial to those working with college students who are interested in designing strategies, techniques, and efforts that support institutional plans for Complete College Georgia.
