Supplemental Instruction

                                    Fall 2014
                                       SI Schedule

What is Supplemental Instruction?
SI is a series of group study sessions led by s student who has successfully completed the course you are enrolled in.  Your student SI Leader was selected by your instructor as qualified and motivated to assist you with learning course content and developing helpful learning strategies. 

Why is this a good idea?
In the SI sessions students have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the class material.  Hearing other students and the SI Leader explain concepts helps students build understanding.  Reviewing class material helps students process new information and link it to previous learning.  

Do I have to go?
No, SI is voluntary. Attendance records are kept for research purposes only so that we can evaluate how helpful SI is for students.  There is no credit or grade for participating. There are usually multiple sessions offered each week; you may go to some, or all, of the sessions.

SI is not a substitute for attending the class.
There are many things an instructor covers in class which may not be covered in an SI session.  SI sessions focus on the most challenging concepts and skills.  All students need to attend their classes to ensure they know and understand everything required of them by their instructor.
