Work Study Job Description

Note Taker 2020-40

Department: Office of Disability Services


Varying schedule, 2 hours/week

Description of Duties

A Notetaker will support students with disabilities by providing clear and accurate notes as a record of lectures or classes. Students with disabilities may have difficulties taking notes for a number of different reasons, for example sight or hearing impairments, specific learning difficulties or because writing is difficult and painful. Notes are essential tools; therefore, the work of a Notetaker provides crucial support.

The students will take notes in an assigned class for which they are registered each time the class meets. Notes are submitted weekly through Moodle and then passed on by the office to students needing support in this area.

Notetakers should have good study habits and good time management skills. Notes are submitted on the student’s own time schedule.
