What is a Notetaker?

Working for the Full-Serve Notetaking Program

Notetakers provide anonymous access to their lecture notes to a student registered at the Centre for Accessible Learning (CAL).

Job Description

  • Attend class regularly & take legible notes
  • Provide notes for every class, even if Notetaker has missed a class it is still their responsibility to find replacement notes
  • Email those notes to calnote@uvic.ca within 24-48 hours of the class
  • Notetakers are required to participate in mandatory training provided by the Learning Assistance Program.
  • After successful participation in this program, Notetakers receive an honorarium and can request a letter of reference.
  • If the student requiring notes cancels their participation in the Full-Serve Notetaking Program, you will be contacted to cancel notetaking and will receive a reduced honorarium relative to the number of class dates you have provided notes for.
