WHAT IS SI?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic support program offering free, regularly scheduled study sessions for traditionally difficult courses. Three to five 50-minute sessions using collaborative learning methods are held each week. SI sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, who are undergraduate students who have previously taken the course and demonstrated academic competency in the subject area. Attend once or attend every session, The choice is up to you, but our data suggests that the more you attend, the higher your final grade will be in the course.
We recommend attending SI on a regular basis.
SI is a free, voluntary opportunity for all students enrolled in a course. Students who participate in SI will:
1. Learn how-to-learn while learning what-to-learn.
2. Work collaboratively with peer students in a facilitated environment.
3. Receive support from a trained, educated SI Leader.
