What is Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction is a trademarked method of delivering academic support to students through a “collaborative learning environment.”
SI serves historically challenging gatekeeper courses.
SI offers several 1 – 1½ hour sessions per week, facilitated by a student leader who attends classes with the students. These sessions target study skills, collaborative exercises and integration of course concepts without “re-lecturing” the material.
SI targets the subjects and not the students.
SI is voluntarily attended and is not a course requirement.
What do Supplemental Instruction Leaders do?
Attend class with students.
Don’t lecture: they enhance, but not duplicate the classroom experience.
Help students to develop study strategies and self-evaluate their progress.
Provide opportunities for students to test their knowledge of course material.
Provide an environment for students to actively engage in learning.
How is Supplemental Instruction different from Tutoring?
At NJCU, tutoring is available by appointment as well as walk-in services in academic departments, the Writing Center, and the Center for Student Success. Tutoring sessions are student-directed; tutors provide explanations to students’ questions. Supplemental Instruction is SI Leader directed; with regularly scheduled sessions that include structured collaborative learning activities. Students may benefit from both tutoring and participation in SI sessions.
