P188: Introduction to POGIL and The POGIL Project

Rick Moog (Franklin and Marshall College, USA)

Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a student-centered approach to instruction based on research on how students learn best. In a POGIL classroom, students work in groups of 3 or 4 using specially designed materials that guide them to develop and deepen their understanding of important concepts. This approach has been successfully implemented in chemistry courses throughout the high school and undergraduate curricula. The POGIL Project is an organization focused on the dissemination of student-centered pedagogies and supporting materials. This presentation will introduce the basic principles of POGIL and will describe the efforts of The POGIL Project in terms of professional development opportunities and available curricular materials at the high school and undergraduate levels.
