Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted collaboration, group study, and interaction for assisting students in undertaking "traditionally difficult" courses. Students meet with their SI Leader after every class lecture to review course material by utilizing a variety of study techniques to achieve academic success.

How do the SI sessions help students?

In the sessions students review information covered in lecture and assigned readings and the SI leader will integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn. Students who attend SI sessions learn study strategies such as note taking, graphic organization, questioning techniques, vocabulary acquisition, and test preparation.

You will have the opportunity to become actively involved in the course material because the SI leaders use the text, supplementary readings, and lecture notes to help you pass the class.
