Facilitated Study Groups
Facilitated Study Groups (FSG) provide a dynamic opportunity for students to review course material, solve problems, and gain an understanding of course concepts in weekly meetings of 6-10 students led by a peer facilitator who has already successfully completed the course.
The meetings are not group tutor sessions; instead, peer leaders facilitate interaction among the group to engage all the members, encouraging them to teach and learn from each other. Study Group membership is voluntary, but members are expected to attend regularly and participate actively.
In contrast to Supplemental Instruction, Facilitated Study Groups target only the interested students of a particular course, are offered for a wider selection of courses and have reduced requirements of the peer leader.
Once there are at least 6 interested students who are available at the same time, email Dr. Richter-Egger. New FSG's can begin at anytime during the semester, though most begin around week 3 or 4. Encourage your classmates to sign up - you can email everyone in your class from Canvas.
Email Dr. Richter-Egger if you have questions.
