Supplemental Instruction

Welcome to Supplemental Instruction

What is Supplemental Instruction?

  • Supplemental Instruction (SI) is structured, peer-led group study. Students who want a fuller mastery of the course material can use SI as a space to encounter classmates who are committed to on-task group study sessions.
  • SI sessions are facilitated by a Leader who has previously taken and done well in the course and have been recommended by professors.
  • The SI Leader attends class (again) with students, and conducts regularly scheduled study sessions to review the course material.
  • The SI Leader does not go over homework; instead, he facilitates activities to promote mastery of the most difficult course material.
  • The SI Leader does not repeat the lecture, so SI sessions are not a substitute for course attendance.
  • This program is designed to give all students in the course additional ways of processing the course material and constructing new knowledge; is not a remedial or tutoring program.
  • SI Session attendance is strictly voluntary and is anonymous from the professor.

Who should attend SI?

  • Students who want higher grades. Wabash data predict better final grades for those who attend SI and significant improvement for students who attend at least one-quarter of the SI sessions.
  • All students!  Basically, SI is a way to study smarter!
