4th Annual IESI Regional Conference Schedule


Faculty Awareness Training

Friday, November 15, 8:00a-12:30p

Facilitated by Dr. Julie Collins and created especially for Faculty with SI support in their classes or those more interested in possibly adding SI support, this training focuses on the impact that the SI Leader will have on others in the class, as well as the benefits for the instructors themselves. Topics discussed include the difference between a Teaching Assistant and an SI Leader, SI Leader dos and don’ts, and relationships between Faculty and SI Supervisors and Leaders; learning strategies are also demonstrated.
