Are your traditional note-taking accommodations presenting barriers to learning for your students?
Peer notetakers can often be unreliable, difficult to coordinate and a limitation on student independence.
By gathering feedback from both students and faculty, Oregon State University realized that their peer notes system was causing a number of barriers to learning for their students, so they decided to look for a better alternative.
In our upcoming webinar, Tracy Bentley-Townlin (Manager of Access Services) and Earlee Kerekes-Mishra (Manager of Intake, Retention and Transition) will discuss how Oregon State explored Assistive Technology as an alternative note-taking accommodation, testing both LiveScribe and Sonocent with their students.
They will share feedback from students, and also explain how they have worked to overcome problems of student engagement with Assistive Technology to expand their use of Sonocent in recent semesters.
- Understand the barriers to learning presented by peer notetakers.
