Recording Lectures Information for Instructors

Recording & Student SAS Accommodation Plans

This section on recording lectures applies to any student who needs to record a whole lecture or series of lectures in class as an accommodation.

Activating the Recording Lectures Accommodation

  1. If a student needs to record lectures as an accommodation, they must first discuss the need for this accommodation with their SAS Program Coordinator.
  2. If a student has recording lectures as an accommodation, it is essential that they discuss this accommodation with every instructor for each of their classes at the beginning of the term, to ensure that any concerns relating to recording lectures can be addressed.
  3. There may be a variety of methods by which recording a lecture (and subsequently composing lecture notes) can be done. Students may discuss options with their SAS Program Coordinator or ask for a referral to the SAS Assistive Technologist to consider alternatives.
