S.I. Sessions


Engage - Learn - Prepare

Supplemental Instruction (S.I.) is an academic enhancement program that integrates academic skills instruction and application into course content and assignments through peer-led collaborative sessions that help students navigate challenging course requirements. These sessions give students the opportunity to meet students from their classes in small groups; engage with course concepts to gain an in-depth understanding of course material; learn new strategies to approach difficult course concepts and assignments; and, prepare for tests, exams, and assignments through regular review and practise. Note: This service is not a replacement for lectures, tutorials/labs, readings, or studying.

Virtual S.I. offers a similar experience as in-person S.I. but in an online environment. The VSI program is being piloted in 2014/2015 in both first-year business and chemistry and is possible due to a grant from the Student Life Levy.

Note: S.I. and V.S.I. sessions start on January 11th, 2015unless otherwise noted.
