Peer Notetakers & Notetaking Volunteers

Some students may require assistance accessing lecture because of limitations resulting from their disability. If alternative means of access are not provided, a peer note-taker may be needed. For most students with disabilities these accommodations are meant to supplement the student’s own notes.  

Volunteering to Serve as a Peer Notetaker 

As notetaking needs are identified,  the Notetaking Coordinator will reach out to the students currently enrolled for the course(s) requested to recruit a Peer Notetaker.   Peer Notetakers are expected to attend class, take lecture notes, and upload their notes to AIM within 24 hours of each class. Notetakers will earn volunteer hours based on the number of hours spent in class and will be provided verification of volunteer service at the end of the semester.  Notes can be uploaded as Word documents, PDFs, or photos of handwritten notes, as long as they are clear and legible.
