Benefits from SI-PASS

A well-planned SI-PASS programme associated with a course can generate a wide range of benefits.

Benefits for the higher education institution

SI-PASS leads to an increased student throughput and fewer drop-outs from courses and programmes.

Benefits for participating students 

Participation in SI-PASS improves possibilities for obtaining better course results. Students learn how to learn and create a network of contacts among their fellow students. They improve their skills at problem-solving, teamwork and cooperation, and also learn critical thinking and how to make presentations to a group.

Benefits for SI Leaders

SI Leaders are perhaps the biggest winners. They become more secure in leading a group and discussions, better at public speaking and at meeting and inspiring students. Their self-confidence also increases and they obtain a considerably better understanding of the course content.

Quotes from previous SI Leaders:

I have become more secure about running group discussions. I have also become more confident in public speaking, but perhaps most of all I have learned a lot about education, and the best way of learning a subject.

I have become better at planning and holding meetings, for example group exercises in my own programme. I also believe that these skills will be useful in future, more formal meetings. I have become better at listening to what others say and not drawing hasty conclusions about what they mean. I have become better at communicating and have a much greater insight into how things I say can be perceived/interpreted in different ways.
