Supplemental Instruction

Students Studying 01


SI is a non-remedial approach to providing support to students for traditionally difficult courses and content. SI sessions are open to all students taking the course, are regularly scheduled, and are facilitated by trained student peers called SI Leaders.


SI Leaders do not re-lecture material but instead use a combination of facilitation strategies and collaborative learning techniques that are grounded in theoretical perspective.
