Cole Baptist

What is your major/minor?

Mechanical Engineering

What year in school are you?

Sophomore

Interesting fact?

Last year I went on many trips to Foster Falls rock climbing which led to my summer job as a zip-line rescue at Treetop Quest.

What do you do outside of being a busy student?

On weekends I often spend time trout fishing around Clevelend, Helen, and Dahlonega. During the week with limited free time, I usually just relax and watch TV.

How many semesters have you been facilitating?

1

Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?

CHEM 1211

What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?

My short term goal is to prevent students from having to change their majors because of "Weed out classes". My long term goal is to become a teacher which SI has been a good stepping stone for.

What is your favorite SI moment?

There was a 29 person study session before a test. There was a lot of participation and a lot was learned.

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?

I have gained a lot of respect for teachers and patience when dealing with students. Some skills still in the process of being built are organization and creativity.

What study tips/techniques do you have for students?

Studying is meant to help you learn. To study something like chemistry or math you have to practice as much as you can. Another good technique to learning how to apply formulas is going over solution sets and learning the process.

What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?

The material I SI for will eventually be applied to engineering, so it is good for me to keep it fresh in my mind, which being and SI helps with.

What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?

I love jeopardy. Jeopardy and competition provides a healthy amount of stress and embarrassment which helps students learn, and learn what they need to go over later on their own.
