Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?

Supplemental Instruction sessions are peer-led study sessions for specific courses.

The SI sessions are scheduled review sessions in which students:

  • Improve understanding of important concepts
  • Collaborate with peers to actively engage with material
  • Develop study and learning strategies
  • Develop organizational tools
  • Solve practice problems 
  • Test yourself before the professor does

The participants learn how to blend course content and study skills while working together.

The sessions are lead by “SI leaders”, students who have previously taken the courses and done well in them. The SI leaders also attend all the lectures, take notes, and are model students. The main purpose of this program is to improve students’ grades and increase student graduation rates.

“SI was helpful because it taught me to organize the information we learned in lectures in a way that made more sense to me.”
