Supplemental Learning

SL: It's all about the learning.

Supplemental Learning (SL) is academic support linked to challenging introductory courses. In courses supported by SL, students are invited to attend weekly sessions — on a regular basis, or occasionally.

SL sessions provide opportunities to study with peers informally — and yet with a planned and strategic approach. Sessions are led by a student who has previously mastered the course and knows what it takes to succeed. Sessions integrate how-to-learn (study skills) with what-to-learn (course content) in a collaborative setting. Check the current Schedule of SL Sessions to find out if any of your courses are supported by SL.

Sessions start one full week after classes begin (listen to leader announcements for exceptions, and for information on exam reviews); regular weekly sessions end when classes end. Watch for final exam reviews to be posted in the final weeks of the term.

What do students say about SL?

Really useful!! It helped me consolidate the material and study smarter.

SL sessions are a real booster. I've been motivated for my upcoming exams by attending these sessions.

Super useful. My study methods have significantly improved. It's also an engaging way to see what I know and don’t.

Gives a great space to talk through concepts and understand at a deeper level.

It's great.. working together with others and getting different perspectives.

I feel a lot better about the course material when I walk out of SL.
