The Use of Sketchnoting as a Revision Aid

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The concept of Sketchnoting was first introduced by Mike Rhode as a means of capturing information in a visual form using a combination of visual and words. Within Higher Education a Sketchnote can be used to record or summarise key points from a body of information using a combination of words, simple pictures, layout and graphics. By undertaking a Sketchnote, it allows a student to be able summarise key facts from a presentation, journal article, book or practical session in a visual manner that is easier to recall at a later time.
This research looks at the use of Sketchnoting as a form of interactive revision during class time. A group of Forensic Science students were asked to Sketchnote their learning after each lecture to form a revision aide for their upcoming examination. These were then shared creating a subject specific revision area for each subject. Students described the task as “Helpful”, “Refreshing” and “Creative” with approximately half the class stating they would be using this as a future revision process for exams.
