    As a first year, lectures are obviously very different to class learning. I started off trying to take notes in the lecture, as I would in class, only to find the lecturer had already moved on to something else, meaning I missed a lot of content and my notes were also rushed and incomplete.

    I find taking notes helps me to remember things, but I can't seem to do it in lectures without missing things...

    Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to learn from lectures?

    Thanks

    Normally you should be able to access the slides online if they are uploaded after the lecture has been given to catch up on notes or either politely ask the lecturer to slow down when you get a minute.

    Thanks, yeah we can access the slides online, but obviously they're not as well tailored to me as my own notes would be... And the slides don't come with the lecturer's explanations so are difficult to make good notes from :/

    Make a note of the slide number, then make notes of what the lecturer is saying. When you have free time, compile your notes from the lecturer and the content on the slides.

    That sounds like it could work, it would save me writing out information that's already provided I guess...

    I'll give that a go, thanks

    If anyone has other tips I'm all ears

    Perhaps just listen very actively and try to understand what the lecturer is teaching. Then maybe the slides will make sense. Also, just write down what you think is important from what the lecturer is saying then combine it later with the slides. Alternatively, print off the slides before the lecture and annotate them during the lecture.
