Abstract

OBJECTIVES: This session will present attendees with an introduction to POGIL, benefits and how-tos of using guided inquiry in the classroom, and examples of POGIL activities for medicine and allied health.

TEACHING METHODS: Attendees will learn POGIL through experience. The presenter will provide sample classroom activities related to medicine and allied health that attendees will go through in small groups while learning the how-tos of implementing POGIL into their own learning environments.

CONTENT OVERVIEW: POGIL is based on research stating that teaching by telling does not work for most students, and that students who are part of an interactive community are more likely to be successful. POGIL is a student-centered teaching strategy that uses a learning cycle of exploration, concept invention and application whereby students work in small groups/teams and complete specially designed guided inquiry materials. The materials supply students with data or information followed by leading questions that guide them toward formulation of their own valid conclusions.

PROJECT IMPACT: Attendees will have the tools to implement POGIL into their classroom and laboratory environments
