About Writers' Retreat

Our Writers' Retreat will provide an opportunity for individuals or small teams to spend focused time on developing, writing, and improving POGIL activities with the mentorship of experienced POGIL author coaches. The 4-day agenda includes workshop sessions focused on activity authoring, feedback sessions, and ample time for writing and interacting with other authors and author coaches.
