About POGIL Workshops

We want to help instructors make their classrooms and laboratories more student-centered. Our Workshops are the best way for people to begin.

Experiencing POGIL as a student (at a 3-day workshop) helped me, as the instructor, to better understand the role of the classroom facilitator and will lead to a stronger, more productive role as the classroom teacher.

POGIL Workshops

The POGIL Project holds 1- and 2-day workshops throughout the year, as well as multi-day workshops during the summer in various regions around the country.  Attendance at these workshops is limited, and prices vary depending on location. Please check our calendar for the most current information.

For a fee, The Project will also provide additional workshops in your area, depending on availability of facilitators. If you have a specific date in mind, please enter that when you submit your request.  We can also work with you to design an ongoing POGIL experience over the course of a year.  Please contact Marcy Dubroff in the National Office for more information at marcy.dubroff@pogil.org. POGIL workshops often work well as professional development days or if you are seeking a meaningful teaching and learning experience for your faculty.

You may request additional workshops in your region using this form, or you may request one of the other ways The POGIL Project might be of service to you.

Consultancies

Experienced Project members are available, by arrangement and fee, to visit you at your institution to provide in-depth guidance or consultancies for you and other interested members of your institution.

On-Site Visits

Alternatively, on-site visits allow you to visit classrooms and laboratories at an institution where POGIL has been fully and successfully implemented.
