Generally. a student's individual notes are near useless in a skills course. Students do "take notes" in our classes. During lectures. demonstrations. performances by their peers and instructor's critiques, they write down something. But. what do these notes look like? How useful are they after the specific exercise and after the course? Do students retain the notes? Turns out, these notes are not very useful at all.
