Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) Workshop
Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a research-informed, student-centered instructional approach that simultaneously develops discipline content mastery and key process skills (skills that are valued by employers.) POGIL takes place in a structured environment in which students work cooperatively in self-managed teams on carefully crafted guided inquiry activities. This inquiry-based environment has been shown to energize students and provide instructors with continuous feedback about what their students understand and misunderstand. Students quickly recognize that logical thinking and teamwork are as important as getting the correct answer, and this underscores the concept that learning is not a solitary task of memorization, but an interactive process of refining one’s understanding and developing skills that are important in both the classwork and in the workplace.
This one-hour introductory e-series workshop is a general overview that will include discussion and activities. We will cover:
- The roles used in POGIL classrooms
- The learning cycle and how it applies to POGIL activities
- The process skills students develop in a POGIL classroom.
