SI/Study Groups

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instructions (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking traditionally difficult courses and is designed for those interested in improving both their understanding of course material and their grades.

Our Goals:

  • To increase student academic performance. 
  • To help students acquire study skills while learning meaningful content.

SI sessions:

  • Integrate how to learn with what to learn.
  • Provide immediate practice and reinforcement of old and new skills.
  • Provide opportunities to clarify concepts, wrestle with topics and discuss ideas.
  • Offer opportunities for peer and collaborative learning.
