Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that attaches peer-assisted study sessions to historically difficult classes. The study sessions are organized by a trained SI peer leader who has already taken the course before and received an A or a B.
These sessions offer many benefits:
Each week the peer leader attends all class sessions with the students and leads 2 regularly-scheduled study sessions based on the content covered in the class. SI peer leaders facilitate a review of the course content and incorporate effective study and organizational skills into the session; therefore, through SI study sessions, students have the opportunity to integrate course content and study skills in a collaborative learning environment. The study session schedules are set during the first week of classes and are based on class input of availability. For students who are unable to attend the scheduled SI study session, alternative tutoring resources are available in the CAS.
