How many semesters have you been facilitating?
Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?
What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?
My short term goal is currently graduating with a Bachelors in Athletic Training. Working with the Supplemental Instruction program and being a facilitator has taught me patience. And graduating with a Bachelors in AT is going to require a whole lot of patience.
Long term goals is to hopefully become a contracted ATC in the Armed Forces and then eventually transition over into professional sports and become the Atlanta Falcon's first ever female head athletic trainer.
As stated earlier this is going to require a lot of patience and persistence, something SI has instilled into my character.
What is your favorite SI moment?
My favorite SI moment is watching students exceed their own expectations.
What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?
I've developed leadership skills that will stick with me throughout my life.
I've developed better public speaking skills that will help me throughout my career and I've gained many friendships that will last me a lifetime.
What study tips/techniques do you have for students?
DO NOT CRAM. GO TO SI. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY WITH YOU IN MIND.
Also, concept map.
What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?
I find biology to be exciting, it is the excitement that I will always remember when I think back on my college career. What excites me is when students get over the "I will never be able to learn this" phase and actually begin to learn and comprehend biology. AND ENJOY IT!
What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?
My favorite CLT has been concept mapping. It has been the saving grace of my college career.
