Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is a peer-facilitated group discussion associated with collaborative learning. It is not tutoring. The SI Leader is a facilitator who has taken the subject and will disseminate course material to help students succeed.

Research shows that students that attend SI sessions increase the probability of earning a better grade. These sessions are free of charge and provide the students with alternative avenues for learning; such as collaborative thinking, social skills, and address individual learning styles. SI review sessions are informal, so bring your notes, your textbooks, and your questions.
