Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly, peer-led group study sessions designed to support students enrolled in some of UK's most challenging courses.  SI sessions are free, drop-in, and open to all students who are interested in improving their understanding of course material and course grade.

What to Expect at an SI Session

When you come to an SI session you should expect to:

  • Work collaboratively with your classmates in a welcoming and inclusive environment. SI sessions are built to engage students in discussion and encourage small group work.
  • Think more critically about course content and improve your study skills.  SI sessions strive to integrate "what to learn" with "how to learn".
  • Bring your class notes, textbook, & questions.  It's OK to make mistakes and be confused when you come.  SI Sessions are the space for you to work through challenging material and arrive at the answers.
  • Have Fun! While learning can be a frustrating process at times, SI sessions are designed to make understanding challenging material more enjoyable.
