Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions are informal, peer- facilitated review group learning seminars for a particular course section – SI sessions meet twice per week.
Participation in the SI program is completely voluntary and open to all students enrolled in the course.
SI Leaders serve as model learners of the subject and they also guide peers to work within a group. Student leaders benefit from the program because the process reinforces their own learning and skill in the subject area. SI leaders are trained in active learning, metacognition, informal assessment, classroom management, diversity and inclusion to name a few. SI leaders undergo multiple trainings every semester, along with frequent session observations, consultation feedback, and formal performance feedback evaluations. We are proud of our training, observation and feedback loop for our SI leaders. Our goal is to provide constant training, mentoring, skill and professional development for our leaders, so that they can best serve the students they support. To become a SI leader, students undergo an application, test teach, and group interview process.
