Supplemental Instruction (SI) Across the Disciplines

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. The sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders. SI Leaders are students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SI sessions for fall 2021 will be held in person and online.

Students should:

  • Check with your instructor to confirm that you have an SI Leader in your class.
  • Consult the associated class Canvas page for SI Session Zoom link information.

Please email tasmith@valleycollege.edu for more information.
