The POGIL Project's 3-day Regional workshop provides instructors from both high schools and colleges/universities with a significant opportunity to obtain professional development and to gain new insights into teaching and learning.
On the first day of the workshop, those who are new to POGIL will attend a Fundamentals of POGIL session while those participants who have previously attended a POGIL workshop will attend two sessions of universal application. The start of the second day will expose all participants to POGIL activity structure and facilitation in a POGIL classroom. For the remainder of the workshop, participants will follow a series of sessions focused on their chosen interest area -Activity Writing, Classroom Facilitation, or Laboratory Track
