Who are the SI Leaders?

SI Leaders are fellow students who have previously been successful in the corresponding course or an equivalent course in the subject area. SI Leaders provide study tools, lead group exercises and discussions around challenging concepts, and guide students toward mastery of course content.

What happens at SI sessions?

SI sessions address both "what" and "how" to learn.  All students in the SI session participate in teaching, learning, and study— not just the SI Leader.  Typically SI students:

 

SI Sessions

  • Review lecture notes and text material
  • Discuss and apply important concepts
  • Prepare for an upcoming quiz or exam
  • Ask and answer questions
  • Learn effective study and test taking techniques
  • Discover strategies for doing well in the course

SI Session

How do I sign-up for an SI session?

Before the quarter begins, students enrolled in a course with SI support will receive an email with information about the associated SI session(s). Students may sign-up with the SI Leader before or after lecture. Please note that being added to the interest list does not automatically guarantee your place in the session. Seats are filled on a first-come basis (up to 20 students per session).

How do I become an SI Leader?

SI Leaders are undergraduate (sometimes graduate) students in good standing with a GPA of at least 3.0, have earned an A in the corresponding course and/or in relevant advanced coursework in the subject area, and are recommended or referred by faculty or the academic department. Interested students should submit an online application (link below) and send a resume and letter of inquiry to si@csusb.edu.
