Process oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) has been used in the teaching of nearly all sub-disciplines of college chemistry. However, implementing POGIL in upper level courses such as analytical or physical chemistry presents some unique challenges that distinguish teaching these types of courses from teaching in general and organic chemistry sequences. The goals of this workshop are to help upper level POGIL instructors develop general techniques to address the challenges of these courses and to provide discipline-specific support in analytical and physical chemistry. This workshop will a) introduce users who are already familiar with POGIL to newly developed classroom materials for analytical or physical chemistry; b) help instructors develop implementation strategies that lead to effective use of these materials in an upper-level classroom and c) discuss assessment strategies an instructor could use to gauge the success of POGIL materials in upper-level courses. These goals will be accomplished through a 45 minute introductory session followed by an hour long interactive session where participants will work through selected POGIL analytical or physical chemistry classroom materials. A discussion of implementation and assessment strategies will take place, led by the facilitators; 3-hour session.
