Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) offers peer-led group sessions and Q&A's for students enrolled in historically difficult courses during fall and spring semesters. Faculty-recommended students (SI Leaders) facilitate engaging and interactive review sessions using a variety of collaborative learning strategies. SI sessions are held in the Learning Commons collaboration rooms or in classrooms; Q&A's are held in the Learning Commons Main Area.

FAQs:

What will I be asked to do at SI?

You will be encouraged to participate! Students learn better when they actively engage with the material by talking and doing instead of just passively listening.

Can I attend any sessions/Q&As?

Absolutely! Just be aware that each SI Leader will be on pace with his or her assigned section and could be slightly off-pace with your section.

How should I prepare for SI?

Just show up! If you have time to review your notes beforehand, that’s a bonus, but otherwise just come ready to learn!
