Introduction to Zettelkasten Note Taking and Tools for Writing Research | GPLL274


This hands-on workshop will introduce students to the modern, free, digital note-taking tool, Logseq. Integrated with Zotero and used in an academic framework, these tools can foster productive research writing. The workshop will help students start practising the principles of a Zettelkasten technique to build a personal knowledge base of literature notes, interlinked ideas, tasks, spaced repetition, visual concept maps, and more. It will show how to associate Logseq notes with bibliographic information in Zotero as part of the research writing workflow.
