Spring has finally made it to Lancaster, and with it come good wishes and news from The POGIL Project. First, please join me in congratulating Tammy Pirmann of the School District of Springfield Township, PA, and Tricia Shepherd of St. Edward's University, Austin, TX, for receiving The POGIL Project’s inaugural Early Achievement Award. Givento one post-secondary and one secondary educator, the award recognizes practitioners who are relatively new to The Project and have distinguished themselves by advancing the goals of The POGIL Project.
We’re also excited about the fantastic response to our summer regional workshops—the Northeast Regional Workshop at Simmons College is already full, and the Southeast, Central, Southwest, and Northwest workshops are filling quickly. If you’re planning to attend one of the four remaining workshops, please register soon to guarantee your spot.
And, look for another exciting program in the works: the National Conference for Advanced POGIL Practitioners, scheduled for June 26-28, 2017, at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. You’ll be hearing more about this in the coming months.
Finally, we’re getting ready for the POGIL National Meeting. We have another capacity crowd this year—a testament to the incredible devotion of the POGIL community and your willingness to work together to advance The Project’s strategic plan and transform education through our collective efforts.
Thank you for everything you do on behalf of The POGIL Project. All of this would not be possible without the support we continually receive from you, the educators and thinkers that help sustain The POGIL Project and our programs.
