    • Westmark Fairbanks Hotel and Conference Center (813 Noble Street Fairbanks, AK)

    Immerse yourself in collaborative learning to experience POGIL from a student's perspective. You will experience group roles, analyze the design of guided inquiry activities, and explore the connections between POGIL strategies and NGSS Science and Engineering Practices. These strategies support students including English language learners, students with learning disabilities, students with autism spectrum disorders, and students in gifted/talented programs.

    • University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
    This workshop will introduce participants to Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning and will explore the benefits of this approach to active learning in the classroom. Participants will experience a POGIL based learning environment, analyze activities, understand how guided inquiry is structured in a POGIL classroom, and consider classroom facilitation and other issues related to the implementation of POGIL.  Participants will also learn the basics of POGIL activity writing and begin to craft their own activities.

    • Pacific Academy (10238 168th Street Surrey, B.C. Canada)

    1. POGIL meets British Columbia
    We will immerse ourselves in a collaborative inquiry learning environment as we explore how process oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) can support the BC Core competencies

    2. On a role: Developing and using roles in collaborative learning environments
    We will dig into two research studies to discover how deliberate design and use of role cards can positively impact learning for students who are English language learners, have learning disabilities, or are on the autism spectrum.

    3. Discovering biological relationships
    We will engage in two POGIL activities to develop basic mastery of phylogenetic trees and the use of physical characteristics and genetic information to develop multiple lines of evolutionary reasoning.

    • Chiawana High School (8125 W Argent Rd. Pasco, WA)

    1. Supporting the NGSS with Process-Oriented Guided-Inquiry Learning (POGIL)
    Immerse yourself in collaborative learning to experience POGIL from a student's perspective. You will experience group roles, analyze the design of guided inquiry activities, and explore the connections between POGIL strategies and NGSS Science and Engineering Practices. These strategies support students including English language learners, students with learning disabilities, students with autism spectrum disorders, and students in gifted/talented programs. (This short course will take place on Oct. 21.)

    2. New POGIL Activities to Teach Basic Concepts of Evolution
    Immerse yourself in a process oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) environment as you work through two new guided inquiry activities. These activities will help your students to 1) make sense of phylogenetic (evolutionary) trees and 2) hypothesize relationships among species by using observable physical characteristics and genetic data as empirical evidence. 

    3. Differentiating Homework by Using Online Simulations and Videos
    In this session participants will practice developing LS, PS, or ESS homework assignments that allow students to perform on a wide variety of levels. Each assignment incorporates online PhET simulations and/or Crash Course videos. Student-friendly assignment templates standardize the tasks, making performance expectations clearer for students and assessment easier for teachers.
