Bridges to Learning Minute Taking

Ref: C2523732

This course provides students with an overview of why minutes or meeting notes are taken, their purpose, different styles and introduces students to the importance of being an active minute taker. The role of the minute takes is a critical one so students will spend time on developing their understanding of it. There will be a practical minute taking exercise which allows students to test out their practice and develop it. Students will also spend some time discussing common problems and how to resolve or manage them.
