2 OVERVIEW Video-based Supplemental Instruction (VSI) is an interactive course delivery system that is used in a variety of educational settings. One popular use offers high school student dual-credit courses that insure content mastery as students develop and refine reasoning and learning skills. In VSI courses, UMKC professors record their lectures on video and enroll high school students in a video section of the college course. A trained facilitator, typically a high school teacher, assumes the role of master learner. The facilitator regulates the flow of information to the learner, stopping and starting the videotape as needed. Facilitators verify that students have comprehended one idea before moving on to the next. Specially developed manuals and internet resources, if available, serve to supplement the lectures and serve as enrichment activities. VSI is presently used in 28 high schools throughout Missouri. VSI courses have been used as honors programs to bridge high school students into higher education. The data collected over the years reveal that high school students perform at levels that are comparable to regularly admitted college students. VSI methodology is based upon Supplemental Instruction (SI), an academic enrichment and achievement program developed at UMKC in The U.S. Department of Education certified that SI is the only reviewed program that both improves student academic achievement and graduation rates. UMKC has trained faculty and staff from more than 1000 post-secondary institutions, high schools, and community centers to implement SI and VSI. BENEFITS These high-demand, dual-credit high school/college courses are available: General Chemistry, Introduction to Physics, Western Civilization to 1600, College Algebra, and Calculus I. Students enrolled in a dual-credit course have the option of earning 3 more credit hours by enrolling in Critical Thinking in the Arts and Sciences. High school students excel in rigorous college-level courses within a supportive environment that prepares them for a successful transition to postsecondary education. VSI permits high schools to offer high-quality advanced dual-credit courses in areas where there is a current teacher shortage. VSI facilitators are not required to have graduate degrees because UMKC professors provide all content lectures and testing. VSI can also serve as a vehicle for professional development and enrichment.
3 ADVANTAGES VSI courses are aligned with the Missouri Show-Me Standards and Grade Level Expectation Standards. Facilitators and students are linked with content experts and video lecture professors for support and enrichment throughout the academic term. Students learn to control the flow of class lectures to allow mastery of one concept before proceeding to new content material. Emerging instructional technology is embedded within the VSI course. Study time is captured and managed within the classroom. Ongoing technical assistance for VSI facilitators is provided through site visits, regional facilitator update workshops, telephone, , and Internet conferencing. VSI ensures the concurrent development of course content as students develop critical thinking and study strategies needed for collegiate success. Students are eligible to compete for special UMKC new student college scholarships. FEATURES UMKC professors provide video lectures, major exams, grades, and personal support. College credit can be transferred to the student s institution of choice. Asynchronous instructional delivery provides high schools with flexibility regarding course scheduling (class schedule, length of class periods, dates to begin and end course). New facilitators participate in an initial two-day workshop. Ongoing technical assistance is available for facilitators through site visits, telephone, and . Interactive student workbook that is designed to accompany video lectures. Facilitators receive manuals that provide classroom activities, quizzes, and other curriculum materials. Emerging technologies are integrated with course material. Internet course discussion groups and web pages link students to supplemental classroom activities and materials. 3

Currently, I am enrolled at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. I use the skills I learned during my VSI experience. I see other students struggling because they did not have the same opportunity I had. ~Elias Cuevas, Graduate of Westport High School, Kansas City, Missouri This was truly a very good learning experience. When I could not understand the video (lectures), I could listen to my peers to get a clearer understanding. ~Dorothy Savory, Former Upward Bound Student, Central High School, Kansas City, Missouri; and UMKC Law Student As a facilitator, I was in a unique position to be an advocate for the students, rather than the one who was evaluating them. I took the exams along side them, so we were all in it together. I learned and struggled with the students as they learned and we all did well. ~Kay Patterson, Ed.D, Former VSI Facilitator, UMKC 7
