Note Taking Support
If a student requests note taking support, the instructor can assist in the following ways:
First, ask the student if they prefer to meet the note taker or remain anonymous.
Announce in class that a student is needed to share notes with another student. Please do not publicly identify the student requiring the notes. Some large lectures will already have note takers assigned.
Ask the note taker to remain after class to meet the student requiring the notes, or to make other arrangements for leaving copies of the notes for the student with you.
If specified on the academic adjustment plan, please provide the student with copies of overheads, Powerpoint presentations, or pre-lecture outlines.
As an incentive, our office offers a copy card that can be used to make copies of the notes for the student and for the note takers personal use. Please tell the note taker to come to Student Disability Services, 110 Towers Concourse, to pick up the copy card.
If you are unable to find a note taker for students who request this service, it is your responsibility to call the office 274-1005.
Note taking support is a mandated accommodation.
