Conduct a POGIL experiment from the student's perspective, learn about facilitating and implementing POGIL experiments in their courses, and write your own laboratory activity following a proven method for successful experiment development. Participants will identify the benefits and challenges of using guided inquiry for teaching lab classes. This workshop is designed to increase the collaborative nature of the lab course; build an effective strategy for facilitating and implementing guided inquiry experiments; develop experiments that require studens to engage in scientific discourse with the data they collect. Experienced POGIL laboratory instructors will guide participants as they begin to write/refine their own lab activities.
Facilitators: Michael Garoutte, Missouri Southern University, and Brian Gilbert, Linfield College
