Participation in Supplemental Instruction sessions impacts students' course GPAs and the students who attend SI on a regular basis indicate that they find SI to be very helpful.
The challenge for The Tutoring Center is to reach those students who do not, or cannot due to work or class conflicts, attend sessions. A collaborative effort with E- learning & Instructional Support led to the development of E-space sites for each SI section. On E-space, session content is uploaded which adds an online resource for every student enrolled in the course. Content includes helpful videos, practice problems, quizzes, and tests which are the same activities that SI attendees participate in during sessions. They are now available to non-attendees.
Current SI Leaders are informed of the GPA differences to help promote SI to the non- attendees in the class, however, more marketing to the academic departments and student population regarding the positive impact of SI needs to occur in the future.
