Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized program that supports students in early essential courses that prepare students for future coursework in their majors. Students are supported by SI Leaders (former students who are typically sitting in class with you) who facilitate multiple study sessions per week.
Who can get Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction is offered for a select number of courses on campus. Fall 2022 courses with SI are BIO 161, BIO 162, BIO 163, BUS 101, CHM 111, CHM 161, and CHM 201.
When are SI sessions?
SI sessions typically begin the second week of the Fall/Spring semester and take place at the same time each week. Your SI leader will introduce themselves during class and communicate meeting times and locations.
What happens during a SI session?
The SI Leader, understanding what it takes to do well in the course, creates a plan for each session. A wide variety of activities that help you learn the content and develop learning/study strategies include items such as: test reviews, creating concept maps, and Kahoot quizzes.
To prepare for each SI session, bring your notes and be ready to participate!
If you have specific questions, chances are they will be answered during the session. If, however, your question is not answered during the session, consider making a Subject Tutoring appointment.
