Become a POGIL Project Facilitator

Every two years, The POGIL Project holds a Facilitator Training Workshop.  This workshop is designed for those who have attended a POGIL 3-Day Summer Workshop, or those who have previous POGIL workshop experience (in-person or virtual) and who are interested in becoming a skilled workshop facilitator who leads contracted workshops for The POGIL Project.

The Facilitator Training Workshop provides training in student-centered teaching techniques as well as effective POGIL workshop facilitation. Participants will be prepared and encouraged to run a 1/2 day inquiry-based learning workshop on their home campuses at the conclusion of this 3-day experience.
