Community-Based Note Taking

This is a tip that I have been using for 20 years! Buy a notebook and tell the learners we'll be taking a set of group notes. (You can also use a laptop if you have good keyboarders.) Each person is responsible for one hour of note taking. They really dig in and do extensive note taking for their section, then pass the notebook or laptop to the next person. At the end of the training, everyone gets a copy of the notes. This creates a great set of perspectives on the content and also can be combined with notes and slides from the facilitator.
