Study Groups / SI

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) (sometimes referred to as study groups) can be simply described as facilitator-led group study that is offered in conjunction with challenging courses each semester. A trained peer who is very knowledgeable about the subject area attends the class and then leads  study group sessions to focus on the difficult concepts and problems in the course.

Supplemental Instruction is purely voluntary; you can attend as often as you like, provided there is space. (This is a first-come, first-served program.) The sessions are collaborative, so you will be working with classmates to better understand the material. They will show you effective strategies for studying the course material which you will have a chance to practice together. Also, they will give you a chance to ask questions or pose your own concerns.

Note: Supplemental Instruction is offered at colleges nationwide. Research has shown that students who participate in several SI sessions generally obtain better grades in their courses.

SI sessions begin during the 2nd week of each semester — check your e-Learning course for announcements from your SI leader. Plan to attend early in the term as space will be limited! Currently, SI is offered in the following courses:
