lecture / presentation description
The objective of this session is to discuss among multiple disciplines the use of a learning approach called Process-Oriented Guided-Inquiry Learning (POGIL) originally developed by chemistry educators. The panel will be comprised of faculty in the disciplines of marketing, accounting, foreign languages, nursing, health education, construction management, and child & family development who have adapted this approach to their discipline. The session begins with an overview of the POGIL approach. Each of the panelists will then provide a discipline specific example adapting the approach and demonstrate how the approach has affected student learning. This will be followed by a work session where audience members will be encouraged to think about a topic in their class that they might deliver via guided inquiry in the classroom. Audience members will be able to better frame in class activities in a guided inquiry format at the conclusion of this session.
