Supplemental Instruction Newsletter: Graduate Edition

 

The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program at SIUE is a non-remedial, institution-wide academic assistance program that increases student performance and retention. The SI program targets traditionally difficult academic courses — those that have a high percentage rate of D or F grades and withdrawals — and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated group study sessions. SI does not identify high-risk students, but rather identifies high-risk courses.

SI is an established program with specific guidelines developed by Deanna C. Martin, Ph.D., at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  More than 3,500 institutions in the United States and 30 countries around the world offer academic assistance through the SI model.

Key Program Elements

  • SI emphasizes what to learn with how to learn.
  • SI provides a vehicle for developing essential academic skills in regular credit-bearing courses.
  • SI participation is voluntary and open to all students in the targeted course.
  • SI leaders attend all the lectures for the targeted course and hold 3 group study sessions outside of class.
  • SI is supervised by a trained professional staff member.
  • SI is offered only in classes where faculty members support SI.
  • SI leaders have usually taken the designated course with the faculty member who is currently teaching the course.
  • SI leaders work to facilitate group interaction and provide study strategies for success rather than lecture.
