Extra Instruction (EI)
The EI session is a one-on-one meeting with a STEM professor to probe into the process of learning, uncover learning obstacles, and improve academic performance. EI is not tutoring. Cadets must demonstrate an honest effort at working assigned problems before attending an EI appointment. Through EI in the QRC, cadets learn how to become successful, self-regulated learners in their STEM coursework.
Small Group Sessions
QRC faculty design and deliver customized small group sessions, “Targeted EI” (TEI), and workshops focused on specific STEM topics to improve quantitative literacy. These small group meetings offer cadets an extra opportunity to participate in targeted STEM discussions outside of their normal class schedule. QRC workshops are traditionally scheduled on weekday evenings during designated cadet study hours.
