What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic success program providing support for historically challenging classes. SI offers free weekly group study sessions outside of regularly scheduled class time focused on reinforcing course material and strengthening study skills. SI sessions are voluntary to attend and open to all students enrolled in the class. Sessions are led by either SUNY Brockport students who have excelled in the course and possess the study skills necessary for success or by a faculty member who has taught the course.
Why should I attend SI?
- Deepen your understanding of key concepts
- Study with your peers in an informal environment
- Develop skills that will help you learn more effectively and efficiently
- Explore topics further & practice new problems
- Receive immediate feedback from a trained SI Leader to help clarify confusing topics
Students who regularly attend SI typically achieve a higher course gpa than those who do not attend.
Who can benefit from SI?
Everyone! SI helps students improve comprehension of difficult concepts and explore new topics further to develop a deeper understanding.
