So, one of my courses (a full-year course) prohibits laptops in class.
This is a problem. I essentially can’t take notes without my laptop. Because my handwriting is illegible if I write at note-taking speed and even then it cramps up in pain fifteen minutes in to a 3-hr course. And, because I’ve been doing my writing and note-taking exclusively with my laptop for the past 4 years, I have much less tolerance for the discomfort before it becomes unbearable than I used to.
But I have no formal diagnosis, so I can’t ask for accommodation from the uni. Experience tells me that when profs are this adamant in their syllabus, they’re unwilling to make an exception unless word comes from the accessibility center.
Well, I have a good memory & prof puts the slides and all course material online, so I hope I’ll be able to cope without notes.
I knew this would happen eventually.
I really need to get on that evaluation. Once my paperwork is sorted, I’ll set it up.
