Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) is a student-centered teaching method that allows students to construct new knowledge. In POGIL, groups of 3-4 students are given carefully designed activities that guide them through core concepts. POGIL develops problem-solving and critical-thinking skills while promoting a deep understanding of the material. In this session I will demonstrate my adaptation of POGIL. Alongside some of my students, the audience will participate in a POGIL activity that has been designed to be accessible to a non-science audience. Those students will also be available to answer questions and give their thoughts regarding the technique. Although I am presenting a science demonstration, the audience will see how POGIL methods can be adapted to virtually any field.
