History of the Supplemental Instruction Program

S01-E04 We feature my history of Supplemental Instruction that was published several decades ago. I updated the history with more accurate numbers regarding the institutions and countries operating the SI program. I also briefly talk about the national SI or PASS centers located around the world. I conclude the history with some personal comments of what it was like to work directly with Dr. Deanna Martin for over a decade at the SI office at UMKC. I also share some thoughts about the current leaders of the International Center for SI and what the future may hold for SI. It was certainly a privilege to be a witness to the development and expansion of SI into a world-wide program. The primary synthetic voices for this episode are Olivia and Henry. When there are direct quotations to read, Ronald and Carole use their voices. Please share your comments about the episode and the use of the voices. I am learning more how to employ the synthetic family to make this a more pleasant listening experience. Especially since this episode is 45 minutes long.

In addition to this audio episode, I also provide a transcript of this episode along with references included in the original version of this history.
