Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly peer-facilitated review sessions designed for students to review course material outside of the classroom. The SI program targets historically difficult courses, such as Anatomy and Physiology, Calculus, American Sign Language (to name only a few).
At each SI session, you will be guided through your course material by an SI leader who has previously taken the course. SI leaders are selected by our DSC professors based on their content understanding and leadership skills. They make sure sessions are both engaging and interactive.
Higher grades! Students who attend SI sessions on a regular basis almost always finish their courses with a higher grade than those who do not attend SI. It's a chance for you to get together with your classmates to compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop study strategies, and test yourself before your professor does.
SI is a series of weekly review sessions where an SI leader will host and lead study sessions in content that is specific to your course. The SI leader is a student of your choice who will work closely with you to develop content and materials.
