Faculty Request for Fall 2021
Note: All supplemental instruction will be done online in Fall 2021. Due to staffing changes we will be offering a limited number of sessions this semester with a focus on gatekeeper courses. We ask you refer students to the Student Achievement Center on-site and online tutoring for further assistance. Our Academic Engagement Partners will be visiting every campus this semester to support group or individual study. Check with your campus librarians for dates and times.
Supplemental Instruction [SI] is a learning program that targets traditionally difficult subjects like anatomy & physiology, calculus, chemistry, physics and more by offering students regularly scheduled group sessions outside of class time to work on course content with their classmates and an SI peer leader. SI groups are requested by your instructor and sessions are specific to their course[s], but are led by an appointed student who has previously taken that course. These are planned formal sessions. Students who attend these sessions are able to discuss, process, prepare and complete course homework and tests. Most sessions are held in our Student Achievement Centers and/or Libraries. Here's what some students are saying:
"One of the best resources this school has."
"It brought my classmates and I closer."
"I would have dropped or failed my class."
"Helped me build my self-confidence"
"Improved my test preparation."
Ask your class instructor if your course has an SI learning group.
*Leaders must have successfully completed the course & must be currently enrolled at the College
"SI has made a huge positive impact...and was critical to getting my students through...I appreciate the program so much!"
