Abstract:

Post-Secondary institutions’ academic accommodations for disabled students include peer notetakers. At UBC Okanagan the demand for this service grew and a streamlined process was required. Connect was engaged to ensure ease of process, accessibility and anonymity of the notes. It has been a successful program for the last 4 years.
