Selected courses from the university's Breadth requirements that have high enrollments and high rates of poor performance or failure have SIs. In addition, upper division, major courses that are traditionally "bottlenecks" (courses with which students tend to have a high rate of difficulty) often have SIs.
SI sessions are generally held two or three times per week throughout the quarter. Many SI leaders also hold extra sessions before exams. Student attendance at all sessions is voluntary. The SI leader's primary purpose is to connect course content with study skills. In SI, students connect what-to-learn with how-to-learn.
SI helps students learn how to study. In each session, the leader demonstrates a new study skill or reinforces a familiar one. Students use their study skills on relevant course content. Participants also learn to apply new skills during the session.
