Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students enrolled in selected courses. At colleges and universities throughout the country, the SI method has been proven to help increase student understanding of course material and raise grades.

Attendance at SI sessions is voluntary. Students have an opportunity to compare notes, discuss important concepts, study for tests, and develop strategies for studying and learning.

An SI Coach facilitates the SI sessions. The Coach is an exemplary student who has previously taken the course, with a grade of A or B.

What can you expect from your SI Coach?

The SI Coach...

  • Attends class along with the students
  • Is trained in the most effective learning and study strategies
  • Operates as a model student and relays tips on the most effective study skills
  • Integrates "how to learn' with "what to learn" in SI classes
  • Provides leadership structure to the study session
  • Is a facilitator for the grade-raising collaborative learning strategies
  • Models critical thinking and problem-solving techniques
  • Empowers students to become independent learner
