Peer Notetaker (DRS)
Peer Notetakers provide the Disability Resource Service (DRS) with their notes from selected courses so that they can be used by students who are unable to take notes for disability-related reasons. Peer Notetakers adapt their notetaking to ensure it is suitable for use by students with disabilities.
Hours involved in the activity
12 hours minimum. For every 12 hours of active learning you can claim recognition for one skill and one attribute. NB: opportunities only exist to develop the skills and attributes specified for this activity in the grey areas of the table below. For this activity you can claim a maximum of two learning and development outcomes.
The Disability Resource Service (DRS) calls for potential Peer Notetakers for specific courses in response to the needs of service users. Candidates are then selected on the basis of their GPA, the quality of their sample notes, and their eligibility to work in New Zealand. Only students already selected as Peer Notetakers by DRS are eligible to apply for this CCR Activity.
