Many students are approved for volunteer note-taking as an academic accommodation and we may require your support to recruit a volunteer.
Please make the following announcement in class and post this request to Quercus. Kindly repeat this announcement until a volunteer is recruited.
“There are one or more students in this class who requires a volunteer note-taker as an accommodation for a disability. By signing up and posting your notes, you can make a significant difference for these students’ capacity to fully participate in this course. To sign up go to the Note Takers Portal or come in person to Accessibility Services, 455 Spadina Avenue, Suite 400.”
Many students have reported that the quality of their notes improves through volunteering. Volunteer note-takers receive a certificate of recognition.
If you are willing to provide your lecture notes, please email them to email@example.com and we will make them available to the student. Your support for our work is much appreciated.
You may also provide a hard copy by mail or fax.
