Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic success initiative that utilizes peer-led study sessions to support students enrolled in historically difficult courses.  SI is heavily concentrated within the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) majors. SI sessions are scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings and assignments, and prepare for exams.  Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. The sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, students who have previously done well in the course and who attend all class lectures, meet with faculty, and serve as model students. Students should check with faculty members to see if SI is offered for the course.

  • Who is an SI Leader?

    SI Leaders are accomplished students who have successfully completed the course in which they serve as an SI leader.  They are trained to share with other students what they have learned about course content and how to study.  Rather than lecture, SI Leaders help students make connections between course material and assignments.

Benefits of SI:

1)  Higher course grades

2)  Increased academic confidence

3)  Increased engagement through learning with other students – establishing a tighter-knit community at FSU

4)  Increased likelihood of graduating
