The Writers' Retreat


Our Writers' Retreat provides 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 (with a pre-retreat orientation) includes workshop sessions focused on activity authoring, feedback sessions, and ample time for writing and interacting with other authors and author coaches.

Who Should Apply?

The retreat is appropriate for authors in all content areas at both post-secondary and K-12 levels.  If you have an interest in authoring high-quality POGIL activities, if you have already authored activities and would like to refine them, or if you are getting activities ready to submit for endorsement, the POGIL Writers' Retreat is a great opportunity for you to get feedback from colleagues and author coaches.
