Supplemental Instruction


Information about COVID-19
COVID-19 Update
The University Learning Center is committed to helping students reach their academic potential in these challenging times. We are currently offering Online Tutoring and Online Supplemental Instruction Sessions

If you are enrolled in a course with SI, please check your course messages for instructions and schedule changes. All SI sessions will be conducted via Blackboard Collaborate.

 If you have questions or need support, please email us at ulc@tamiu.edu. 

 


What is Supplemental Instruction? 

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is geared to assist students succeed in historically difficult courses, integrating “what to learn” with “how to learn” through weekly SI sessions.

These sessions are led by trained SI leaders who have mastered course content in previous semesters and use collaborative activities to foster student success. Students who regularly attend SI can improve their grade one-half to a full letter grade higher than those who do not participate!

Essential components of SI include: 

  • Weekly, out-of-class study sessions where you and you peers can learn study strategies and discuss course materials to prepare for class.
  • Designated SI leader who attend class, take notes, and complete reading assignments to know what you are learning.

How do I know if SI is offered in my course?

An SI Leader will introduce SI to your class the first week of the semester; in addition, the SI Leader will make regular announcements and send messages through Blackboard. Keep an eye out for these messages as SI Leaders schedule special review sessions or change time to meet your needs!

You can also see the SI schedule per semester below. Check back periodically for changes and check your Blackboard Messages for updates from your SI Leader. 

If your class is not listed below, do not worry, you can visit our tutors for one-on-one tutoring!
Contact the University Learning Center for more information.

 

For location, I see Blackboard Collaborate. What does that mean?

Currently, all SI sessions are being held virtually through Blackboard Collaborate. This is to ensure we are following CDC guidelines and practicing social distancing.

You will be able to attend the virtual SI sessions from the comfort of your home. Your SI Leader will share a Collaborate link via Blackboard messages. All you have to do is to connect at the scheduled times. During the virtual SI sessions, you can ask questions, work on problems, and chat with fellow classmates and SI Leader about course content.

Need help contacting your SI Leader, please email ulc@tamiu.edu.
