W17: POGIL Project Workshop: Introduction to POGIL

Rick Moog, Franklin and Marshall College

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a student-centered, group learning approach to instruction based on research on how students learn best. In a POGIL classroom, students work in teams of 3 or 4 using specially-designed activities that guide them through a learning cycle to develop important concepts. In addition, the POGIL classroom environment focusses on the development of key process skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, and problem solving. POGIL has been successfully implemented in a wide range of course in high school chemistry courses and throughout the undergraduate chemistry curriculum. This workshop will provide an introduction to the principles and practice of POGIL, including the experience of being a student in a POGIL classroom. Participants will gain insight into the structure of POGIL activities and their implementation in the classroom, and will learn about the effectiveness of the approach.  Attendance at this workshop will provide appropriate background for those interested in attending other POGIL Project workshop sessions; 3-hour session.
