Students should discuss their accommodation of copies of lecture materials with their instructor when they become aware that the approved accommodation is necessary to support their notetaking efforts. Once the instructor shares their lecture materials, the shared copies, whether digital or otherwise may not be used for any purpose other than as a supplement to the student’s notes. The instructor should not withhold lecture materials or PowerPoint files if they are available and reasonably necessary to accommodate a student’s disability as defined by law.
The following are expectations of any student utilizing lecture materials:
- The lecture materials should not be used for any other purpose than as a supplement for notes taken in class and should not be shared with anyone else.
- The information contained in the lecture materials is protected under federal and international copyright legislation, and may not be published or quoted without the lecturer’s explicit consent and without properly identifying and crediting the lecturer.
