Verena Paepcke-Hjeltness: Sketchnoting
AMES, Iowa – A different way of studying is spreading around Iowa State University.
Verena Paepcke-Hjeltness, assistant professor of industrial design, is teaching students sketchnoting to research how this style of note-taking affects learning, particularly in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. Sketchnoting is an alternative to traditional note-taking, a process of adding visuals to notes in order to cement what students learned and push them to think about the material in a new way.
Over the last three years, Paepcke-Hjeltness has introduced sketchnoting to about 1,000 students, faculty and staff, including electrical engineering, apparel and merchandising, food science and human nutrition, industrial design and freshman design courses.
