What is Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that uses peer-assisted study sessions. SI sessions are regularly scheduled; informal review sessions where students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. The sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders,” students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students. SI is a non-remedial approach to learning as the program targets high-risk courses rather than high-risk students.
