Notetaking is the practice of capturing important pieces of information in a systematic way. It is not limited to the classroom. Notetaking is an important accommodation in any situation requiring learning, including job sites and internships. Effective notetaking is a skill that is acquired through training and strengthened through practice. It is an accommodation that individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing rely on when they are in an environment of learning. In fact, research conducted with college students who were deaf indicates that most students view note-taking as a very useful support.
