The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program consists of peer-assisted study/review sessions. SI sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings and lectures, work through problems, and predict test questions. Sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, students who have previously done well in the course and who re-attend all class lectures, take notes, and teach “how to learn” with “what to learn” strategies for the course. Attendance is voluntary. SI sessions are offered for selected courses in Chemistry, Biology, and Economics.
