I used to use my learning agenda religiously, I’d take questions from there and that’s how my whole set of PBL notes were arranged (in that q and format). I’d type up a huge document covering that PBL case and each aspect of it in detail. As I mentioned in the answer to my question regarding note-taking the purpose of this was to compile the content all in one place rather than to actually learn it all. I’d then go through this set of long notes and attempt to summarise it down to one page and that process is what’d help me to learn and embed the content in my mind. I’d try to do this as much as I could before the session, but often I wouldn’t manage that so after the closing session I’d create a more detailed double-paged spread. This is what I’d then use as my point of reference to learn from and prepare for exams.
