The Supplemental Learning program provides peer-run study sessions in the fall and winter semesters for difficult NAIT courses. Students who finished the course with a strong grade are hired to re-attend lectures and run drop-in study sessions. These sessions are free and anonymous to the instructor. Contact the Coordinator of Learning Supports for more details at 780.471.8823.
What is Supplemental Learning?
Supplemental Learning is a peer-led study program that offers help to students in challenging courses.
Our courses are:
- ACCT1115 – Introductory Accounting I
- STAT2201 – Business Statistics
- CPSC1012 – Programing Fundamentals
- DMIT1508 – Database Fundamentals
- ALTE1105 – Energy and Storage
How does it work?
Students who have finished the course with a high grade are hired and trained to run drop-in study sessions for current students.
During a supplemental learning session, with the help of the Supplemental Learning Leader, you will
- review course concepts
- work through difficult problems
- ask questions
- test yourself
Attendance is free and, to ensure privacy, your instructor isn't given a list of attendees.
We have seen a 10-15 per cent increase in the final grades of students who attended sessions.
