Note Taking

The Accessible Learning Centre (ALC) provides a note-taking service for registered students with disabilities who have been approved for this classroom accommodation.

The note-taking program is intended to supplement lecture notes and in-class learning, not replace them.

Note Takers

The ALC works collaboratively with professors to help recruit student volunteers. The note takers are students in your classes who have volunteered to share their class notes in a timely manner. Effective note takers are selected for their dedicated class attendance, clear notes and good communication skills.

Your Responsibilities

  • Attend all classes, unless you are unable due to illness. The note-taking service will be withdrawn if there are absences for reasons other than illness.
  • Note takers are a back up to your own notes and cannot be guaranteed for every class.
  • Do not give or sell a note taker's notes to another student.
  • Provide feedback to note takers on ALC online and inform the ALC staff about concerns.
  • Notify the ALC if you drop a course for which you requested a note taker, or if the course notes are available from the instructor.
