What is SI?
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
is an academic support model that uses peer-assisted
study sessions to improve student retention and success
within targeted historically difficult courses. SI is an
approach that provides regular review sessions outside
of class in which students work collaboratively by
discussing readings, comparing notes, working together
to predict test items, and sharing ideas for improving
class material. Out-of-class review sessions are led by
SI leaders, students who took the class already and did
well. SI leaders attend all class lectures, take notes,
and act as models to those currently taking the course.
