An SI Leader assists students in understanding course material,
interpreting lecture notes, and reinforcing course material by leading
workshops directed at increasing student comfort and familiarity with the
course. SI Leaders attend all class
meetings for their designated course, take notes, review homework and all
assigned class material to ensure a shared awareness of the classes’
progression. Multiple SI workshops
will be held outside of scheduled class time at an assigned location for
approximately 1 hour, up to three times a week. In addition, SI Leaders will be expected
to attend training sessions prior to the start of the semester, and hold
weekly office hours. A prospective SI Leader can expect a
commitment of 10 hours a week per assigned course (expect in weeks where holidays and semester breaks occur).
