SI-Net: An Email Discussion Group

Thank you for your interest in joining SI-Net, the Supplemental Instruction (SI) email discussion group. SI-Net is intended as a modern forum for the exchange of ideas among those interested in SI. To date, faculty and staff from over 1000 institutions in 13 countries have participated in SI Training trainings. So when you email the SI-Net, you are emailing SI supervisors, Certified Trainers, faculty members, and SI leaders around the world!

Purposes of SI-Net include:

  • Exchange of ideas and techniques between institutions
  • Opportunities for SI leaders to participate in dialogue with SI supervisors and faculty members
  • Identification of new educational resources and practices that would be helpful for other members of the network
  • Discussion about customizing SI as it is implemented in specific academic content areas and institutions
  • Announcements about SI-User group meetings, training opportunities, and job opportunities

SI-Net is an independent, unmoderated, mailing-list interest group. This means it is open to all participants’ mailings without editing or prior approval. Though it is made possible by the cooperation and facilities of the participating institutions, its activities or any opinions expressed through it are without the sanction of any unit, department or school. Neither the institutions nor the participating states are responsible for its content. There is no charge from the University of Missouri-Kansas City to subscribe to SI-Net. We look forward to talking with you on the network.
