The PAC is a supportive environment of POGIL practitioners interested in developing new instructional materials. The primary goal is to provide support to authors to iteratively improve their activities and better support student learning.
The purpose of the Activity Idea submission category is to support members of the POGIL community in identifying areas of need, generating ideas for activities, and connecting POGIL activity authors.
Authors who submit Activities for Review and Activities for Classroom Testing will receive formative feedback from experienced POGIL practitioners in order to revise and improve the quality of submitted activities and ensure activities function optimally in a wide variety of classroom contexts.
All authors who submit activities will also provide formative feedback through participation in both our traditional and collaborative peer review process. Small groups of first-submission authors will meet online with a facilitator to share feedback, discuss recommendations, and develop insights. After this initial calibration training, authors will also have the opportunity to review activities by completing feedback rubrics directly through the PAC.
