Register Today!

Summer Workshops are filling quickly!

Learn about POGIL's philosophy and methodology and learn how POGIL can help restructure your classroom environment and enhance student learning!

Focus on one of three tracks:

Activity Writing, Classroom Facilitation or Laboratory

This workshop is designed for both those who are new to POGIL and those who have previously attended a POGIL workshop. 

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 Modeling a POGIL classroom.  For the remainder of the workshop, participants will follow a series of sessions focused on their chosen area of interest - Activity Writing, Classroom Facilitation or Implementing POGIL in the Laboratory.
