Supplemental Instruction-Academic Development - Carnegie Mellon University

What is Supplemental Instruction?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic enrichment program that is offered in traditionally difficult courses. SI discussion and review sessions are facilitated by trained student SI Leaders who have already completed the course and received an A in it.

Designed to supplement – not replace – class lectures and recitations, SI sessions are interactive and collaborative. Students who attend sessions learn to integrate how to learn with what to learn.

SI sessions are usually held twice weekly for one hour; additional sessions are held prior to exams. Attendance at sessions is voluntary.
