Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly study sessions offered for students enrolled in historically
SI Sessions are:
- free, voluntary and open to all students
- a great opportunity to improve understanding of material and course grades
- an excellent way to meet other people in your class.
- guided by an SI leader who has taken the course and is prepared to share with you
what they have learned about how to study.
- The leader attends the class and works in close association with the instructor so
that sessions are relevant to the material covered.

Faculty Focus allows LSU Faculty to share best practices in active learning through
