About SI

What is SI?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides a unique peer-to-peer learning experience in an interactive group environment called SI Sessions. The SI Sessions are regularly scheduled review sessions led by SI Leaders (undergraduate students) who have previously earned an A in the course. SI Leaders are trained on facilitation strategies, learning strategies and collaborative learning techniques to encourage student to student interaction. Students enrolled in a course where SI is offered will receive a weekly e-mail from your SI Leader(s) with session information.
