Note-Taking

The Accessible Learning Centre provides a note taking service for students who have registered with the Centre and who have been approved for this classroom accommodation. The fundamental design of lectures can make note taking challenging for some students. It is not uncommon for lectures and lecture rooms to have extraneous noise and distractions, uncomfortable chairs and infrequent or no breaks, presentation of highly visual material, poor room acoustics and sound quality, and fast-paced delivery of content. These factors can impede the ability of someone with chronic pain, ADHD, a learning disability or sensory impairment, for example, to take comprehensive notes.
