Supplemental Instruction Sessions

SI Sessions

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support model developed by Dr. Deanna Martin at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in 1973 that uses peer-assisted study sessions to improve student retention and success within targeted historically difficult courses. The SI model provides peer support by having students who succeeded in traditionally difficult academic courses (e.g., Biology 202, Chemistry 212, Math 108, Physics 101) help other students complete these courses. The SI sessions are facilitated by SI leaders who were chosen by the professor to represent a specific class.
