Rock Valley College – Supplemental Instruction Program
Guiding Students to Completion through Collaborative Learning
Rock Valley College has a new avenue for assisting at-risk students in gateway courses for CTE (Career and Technical Education) pathways. The Supplemental Instruction Program trains students who successfully completed a CTE gateway class to facilitate collaborative study sessions. The SI Program’s non-remedial approach to learning guides students toward completion by combining “What to Learn” with “How to Learn.” Through peer-led group study sessions outside of class, the SI Leader guides students through the most difficult course concepts. Students engage in collaborative group activities that enhance their knowledge of the course content.Read More
Don’t Let Great Art Pass You By
Have you ever wondered about the stories behind some of the unique sculptures on Rock Valley College’s campus? Maybe you have walked right by them any number of times but your head was down staring at your phone. Hey, we have all been guilty of that. Well, next time you are taking a stroll around campus, put the phone away and keep your eyes peeled for some of these distinctive pieces of artwork that call RVC home.
For his Art Appreciation classes held over the summer, Art Instructor Jeremy Foy brought some of these sculptures to his students’ attention.
“It was not until I took my students on a tour around campus that they actually stopped to look at the art and take it in,” said Foy. “Students told me that they passed these pieces everyday on the way to class and had never stopped to look at them. I told them that we pass a lot in life because of our busy schedules. I hope that stopping to see, talk about, and learn the history of these sculptures will allow them to take these moments in-between rushing to our next destination to notice our surroundings, take them in, critique them, and appreciate them.”Read More
