SI Leader Training


Arc Student Employment Training/Orientation

In addition to a half-day ARC New Student Employee Orientation and Welcome (onboarding), all student employees participate in mandatory program training, which is typically held prior to the start of the fall term. Each of the ARC’s programs uses different approaches to learning. The unique aspect of these programs, therefore, requires specific trainings as well as in-service and professional development. Below is a detailed description of the student employee training programs in the ARC.

SI Leader Training

SI Leader training is three days and directly follows ARC Orientation. Attached is a sample agenda of the SI Leader training program. In addition to understanding the SI Model and philosophy, key training topic areas include the following:

  • Facilitating/Managing SI sessions
  • Demonstration of  collaborative and interactive session techniques/activities
  • Marketing strategies/Promoting SI
  • Assessing student’s understanding of course material
  • Incorporating Learning Styles theory into SI sessions
  • Working with faculty

Much of SI Leader training is interactive with senior SI Leaders facilitating many of the activities, role plays, and scenarios.
