Note-Taking Facts for Faculty

In-class Announcement

Faculty may e-mail the following announcement or read it in class to locate a volunteer note taker. Whichever way you choose, the student's confidentiality must be maintained.

Peer note taker needed. The Office of Student AccessAbility is recruiting a volunteer to take notes in this class. No extra time outside of class is required.

Qualifications for a volunteer peer note taker:

  • Has legible handwriting and reasonably well-organized notes.
  • Plans to attend class regularly.
  • Is willing to have their notes copied or is willing to use a special carbonless paper that makes two copies as you write.

Once you have identified a volunteer note taker, please put the student needing assistance in contact with the volunteer. The student registered with our office is responsible for working with the volunteer note-taker to get copies of the student’s notes.
