Faculty FAQ- Note-taking

Am I responsible for providing the student with a copy of my notes, or finding a note-taker?

I have received a Letter of Accommodation stating the student is approved for: “The ability to record lectures through the use of a digital recorder, laptop, tablet or mobile device for private use, for the duration of the course only”. What does this mean?

 

Am I responsible for providing the student with a copy of my notes, or finding a note-taker?

No. You are not responsible for providing a copy of your personal notes to the student, nor are you responsible for identifying a note-taker for the student. It is the responsibility of the student to request a note-taker from our office. At that point, our office will send an email to the entire class roster asking for an individual who is willing to share his or her notes. Our office will provide a stipend to the individual for their notes. If we are unable to identify someone, our office may reach out to you for assistance.

If you provide notes and/or slides needed for this class, and you don’t feel that an additional note taker is necessary, please let us know.

This means that the student is allowed to use a recording device during the class. The student has been made aware that the recordings are for their personal use only, and only for the duration of the course. The student is not allowed to share or replicate the recordings in any way.
