Supplemental Instruction

Did you know...

Research suggest that group study is most effective for most learners? If you are enrolled in a class that offers Supplemental Instruction (SI), your class will have an SI Leader - a peer facilitator, who holds two weekly scheduled review sessions outside of class hours for you and other students in your class. Your SI Leader will attend your class every day, so she or he will know exactly what your professor is telling you and asking you to learn. Research also tells us that attending a SI session is roughly the equivalent of studying 2.5 hours alone.*

What our students say...

“SI helps to reiterate what I’ve learned in class, and makes details that I may not have caught on my own more memorable.”

“SI helped me to better understand the material we went over in class, we looked at the material from a different perspective and went over the notes to prepare for the exam and class. “

"SI was very helpful. We repeated material more thoroughly and played games to make learning interesting."
