Notetaking by Hand ft. Dr. Hetty Roessingh

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Dr. Hetty Rooesingh teaches at the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary. Dr. Roessingh’s research interests include reading and vocabulary development, but she also has developed quite a following through her insistence that we return to teaching young children how to write cursively.

In this episode, Dr. Roessingh extends that conversation to the art of taking handwritten notes. Whether you are an educator or a parent working with children at home, this conversation will get you thinking differently about the art and science of note taking.
