Regularly scheduled SI sessions are facilitated by trained Peer Educators - undergraduate students who have previously taken the course and demonstrated academic success in that particular subject area. The Peer Educator connects with the students who are taking that class for the first time. They sit in on class lectures, take notes, and act as a support system to those currently taking the course. Additionally, the Peer Educator creates and facilitates follow-up study sessions throughout the week based on the course syllabus, faculty recommendations, the students’ needs, and what’s been going on in the class.
"I have only heard positive reviews from the students who have found the review sessions very helpful, especially for exam preparation. I think that this program can be beneficial for many courses here at Tulane." Professor Kevin Morris, Department of Philosophy
