About the POGIL National Meeting (PNM) 

The PNM, held annually in St. Louis, is a working meeting intended to allow active members of the POGIL community to participate in important tasks to further the mission of The POGIL Project.  The PNM provides opportunities for attendees to interact and collaborate with colleagues in a variety of ways and includes a mix of plenary sessions, parallel sessions, poster sessions, and open working time.

At the 2018 PNM we will continue to address ways in which The POGIL Project can assist faculty and institutions as they initiate and sustain pedagogical reform.  We will also finalize our Strategic Plan for the next five years.

PNM Application

Application Information

Attendance at the POGIL National Meeting is by application.  Applicants are asked to detail their history of attending POGIL workshops and meetings, their level of implementing POGIL in their classroom and any experience as a POGIL facilitator.   The application also allows an opportunity to identify the strategic work plan groups/projects in which you are most interested in actively participating.

Who Should Apply?

The PNM is a meeting intended for experienced POGIL practitioners to work on projects related to the Strategic Plan goals.  Due to the nature of the meeting, most participants have attended PNMs in the past and continue their work on ongoing projects.  However, The Project values new ideas and fresh perspective and welcomes first-time participants.

The typical first-time PNM participant has attended one or more advanced workshops, has implemented POGIL in their classroom for several years, and has some familiarity with the Strategic Plan.  Having attended a National Conference of Advanced POGIL Practitioners (NCAPP) is considered a valuable way to gain a breadth of POGIL exposure that is important at the POGIL National Meeting.
