Supplemental Instruction (SI), first created at
the University of Missouri-Kansas City, is a non-remedial approach to learning that supports
students’ academic success by integrating “what
to learn” with “how to learn.”
Students meet weekly in voluntary, out-of-class
group study sessions that are facilitated by trained peer leaders who use collaborative activities to encourage peer-to-peer interaction in small groups.
SI sessions focus on helping students master the
most difficult course content and prepare for
upcoming tests and exams.
At Mount Carmel College of Nursing, SI has been implemented for historically difficult courses and
is supported and evaluated by the Student Success Center Coordinators. All students are encouraged
to attend SI sessions to assist them with successful course completion.
SI is a free service offered to all students in the supported courses. Click on the Calendar to see
when SI sessions are being held this semester.
