TECHNOLOGY ASSISTED SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION (TASI)


SWE students

 

Maximizing Engineering Potential (MEP) offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) for select courses.


What is SI? SI is a non-traditional form of academic support that focuses on collaboration and group study, using peer-to-peer interaction. Through 50-minute sessions, SI Student Facilitators offer course-specific learning and study strategies to help students successfully negotiate the course.

  • Classes Supported: Various, please see below chart
  • SI Session Time: U-Hour (Tuesday/Thursday 12pm-1pm)
  • Location: Various, please see below chart
  • Note: You must have a Student ID card to check-in

Background: Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an MEP-led program that serves all students in the College of Engineering. SI targets those classes (primarily upper division level) that have been identified through historical data as having a low-completion rate. Due to low-completion rates, it creates a bottleneck for students who need those classes in order to move through the course sequence or to graduate. These bottleneck courses tend to create a constant source of frustration among students who are unable to persist in order to graduate on a timely basis. Time-to-degree is important; and few interventions are able to be implemented on a large scale. As an innovative approach to address the issue the “scaling up” challenge, the MEP Director - in collaboration with the Chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department - developed the “Technology-Assisted Supplemental Instruction” (TASI) program; this approach uses technology to be able to offer SI to all sections of selected high-DUF courses.
