Have you ever thought about teaching economics? Would you like to improve your own understanding of basic economic theory? Did you earn an A in ECO 105 or ECO 106? If so, working for DePaul's Supplemental Instruction (SI) program might be for you.
What is Supplemental Instruction (SI)?
- SI is a student-support program that targets historically difficult courses

- These small group sessions are facilitated by SI leaders, trained student mentors who focus on course content and study skills
What is an SI Leader?
- A student who has previously taken one of the courses SI supports
- Someone who excels in and is excited about the subject he or she is involved with
- A student who wants to help his or her peers succeed
What major responsibilities does an SI Leader undertake?
- Attending the class lectures each week
- Facilitating three one-hour review sessions each week outside of class
- Planning for weekly sessions and communicating with students outside of class
- Attending a training session and observation reviews
- About nine hours of commitment per week for which SI leaders are paid a stipend
