What is POGIL?

POGIL is an acronym for Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning.

POGIL originated in college chemistry departments in 1994; there are now well over 1000 implementers in a wide range of disciplines in high schools and colleges around the country.

POGIL uses guided inquiry – a learning cycle of exploration, concept invention and application – as the basis for many of the carefully designed materials that students use to guide them to construct new knowledge.  

POGIL is a student-centered strategy; students work in small groups with individual roles to ensure that all students are fully engaged in the learning process.

POGIL activities focus on core concepts and encourage a deep understanding of the course material while developing higher-order thinking skills.

POGIL develops process skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and communication through cooperation and reflection, helping students become lifelong learners and preparing them to be more competitive in a global market.
