Recruiting a Note-taker
The University Academic Support Centers (UASC) provides eligible students with a note-taker packet. This packet contains a letter explaining that the student is registered with the UASC and needs an in-class note-taker due to the functional limitations created by the disability. The packet contains a script that can be read aloud in class to obtain a volunteer note taker from other students attending class. The packet also contains tips on how to improve note-taking, lists of common abbreviations, expectations of serving as a note-taker and non-carbon paper that the note-taker can use to share notes with the student with a disability. However, if you have difficulty identifying a volunteer in class the following suggestions we have received from other faculty may be helpful.
