Student notebooks shed light on how knowledge was formed and transmitted
Academic success hinges on many factors. One of these is good note-taking skills. Good note-taking improves active listening as well as material comprehension and retention. However, it is not a new practice; students have been taking notes for hundreds of years. The EU-funded NOTA project will study medieval notebooks produced in the context of late medieval universities. By studying a corpus of Latin manuscripts, the project will delve deep into creative reflections on the motivation and the technical aspects involved in producing notebooks. Specifically, it will study the 14th and 15th centuries, when paper entered universities, elucidating how knowledge was formed and disseminated by means of note-taking.
