ODI Supplemental Instruction
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides Supplemental instruction (SI). SI is a series of weekly review sessions for students enrolled in selected courses. It is designed to organize and improve the ways students study for class by providing a collaborative atmosphere led by an SI Leader with mastery in the course subject. The SI Leader shadows course lectures to understand how students are currently receiving information, and tailors their sessions accordingly.
Students who regularly attend SI Sessions earn better grades, develop a greater understanding of the course material, and learn more effective ways to study. Additionally, they develop relationships with peers and develop a network of support. SI session attendance is not mandatory, and students may begin attending at any point in the semester. Do note - the greatest benefit derives from regular attendance and active participation.
If an ODI Scholar is enrolled in a SI-offered course, they will be automatically enrolled in a Carmen group at the beginning of each semester. To access this group, log into Carmen, visit the “ODI Academic Services - Student Page,” select “People,” and select the “Groups” tab. The ODI TSSS Program Manager and SI Leader will share session information (time, location, days) at the beginning of each semester.
