Supplemental Instruction Leaders

Supplemental Instruction Leaders

At QCC, Supplemental Instruction provides the opportunity for students to engage in peer-facilitated sessions that integrate content and learning skills.  Supplemental Instructors attend all lectures of a selected STEM course that have been identified as challenging, to become knowledgeable about that course’s content.  At the Supplemental Instruction session, the SI leader facilitates discussion, reviews lecture notes/course content, and models successful learning strategies to engage students and bring further clarity to what they learn in the classroom. Students who attend Supplemental Instruction sessions are more likely to do better on exams and develop the skills necessary to become independent learners.

As a Supplemental Instruction Leader you will:

  • Gain perspectives on teaching by developing relationships with faculty
  • Enhance critical thinking and facilitation skills
  • Develop leadership skills and opportunities
