Spring 2014 schedule

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support program that targets historically difficult courses. Developed by Deanna C. Martin, Ph.D. at the University of Missouri - Kansas City in 1973, SI is a non-remedial approach to learning enrichment that increases student performance and retention. SI offers regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions to all students enrolled in a targeted course. SI study sessions consist of informal study groups in which students review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for examinations.

UHD Supplemental Instruction

SI at UHD targets core curriculum courses that have historically high failure and withdrawal rates. The program provides free study sessions and exam reviews led by UHD students who have taken and excelled in the course for which they are study leaders.

Our SI leaders attend the classes they serve and take notes so that they will be able to plan their study sessions and exam reviews effectively. The sessions and reviews are conducted with a view to fostering collaboration and helping students acquire and share new learning strategies. UHD SI leaders are trained in the classic SI model as developed by the University of Missouri at Kansas City.
