Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for all students in the course section who want to acquire effective learning strategies and develop an understanding of difficult course material and improve their grades.
Attendance at sessions is usually voluntary. For you, the student, it’s a chance to get together with classmates to compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying the subject and test yourself before your instructor does so that you’ll be prepared. At each session you will be guided through this material by your SI Leader, a competent student who has already successfully completed the course.
