Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL)

21st Century Pedagogies

"Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning is a learning environment where students are actively engaged in mastering a discipline and in developing essential skills by working in self-managed teams on guided inquiry activities. The focus is on developing important process skills in the areas of information processing, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, communication, management, and assessment. Without critical processing and communication skills, many students will be lost in today's interactive research and workplace environments."
