Produced in association with the International Center for SI, University of Missouri-Kansas City
Three decades of research point to SI's effectiveness in improving retention, student learning, and academic success. By targeting high-risk courses rather than at-risk students, SI overcomes the stigma attached to remedial education, making it an ideal intervention for all learners. SI is also a highly flexible initiative and has been adapted to fit a variety of institutional contexts in nearly 30 countries. The revised edition describes the innovations in SI since the previous edition. Topics include: launching a new SI program, recruiting and training SI leaders, adapting SI for specific disciplines and across a range of contexts, and developing a video SI program.
