Experience POGIL

  • Groups of 3 to 4 people:

    • 1 MANAGER to keep group on track and obtain supplies

    • 1 RECORDER to fill out worksheet

    • 1 REPORTER to report back to class

    • An optional REFLECTOR who comments on the successes/issues with the activity (See Exit Pass)

The Activity

  • Team should work through the activity on page 12 of the workbook.

  • MANAGER – Longest serving JMU employee: Your group has 18 min.

  • REPORTER – Next longest employee:

  • Write the group’s response to the last question on the board and be prepared to defend it.

  • RECORDER – Newest JMU employee.

  • Debrief

  • POGIL activities begin with a model.

  • They guide the students through exploring the model.

  • At the next level they begin to extend their understanding of the concepts.

  • Students must articulate their understanding of the concepts and not just solve a problem.

  • Activities may be followed by at home homework to practice concepts or to further apply the concepts from the activity.

Wrap Up

  • About POGIL

  • Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning

  • Learner centered technique

  • Self managed teams work through activities

  • Instructor serves as a coach/facilitator

Wrap Up

  • Why POGIL?

  • High attrition in sciences (STEM)

  • Low performance by students

  • POGIL was an attempt to change the curriculum to address the needs of more students and attract more students to stay with the science disciplines.

Wrap Up

  • Origins

  • Work done informally in 1990’s

  • 2003 NSF Award

    • David Hanson, SUNY @ Stony Brook

    • Richard Moog, Franklin and Marshall

    • Others

  • Award is used to train practitioners in this approach

  • Original focus on chemistry education, but applicable to many other disciplines

  • Making its way into secondary education

  • Effectiveness

  • DWF’s declined from 21.9% pre-POGIL to 9.6% POGIL. (General Chemistry students. N=420 and 485 respectively). Farrell, et al 1999

  • ACS General Chemistry Exam, 56% average over 10 years (highest single year was 65%). 1st year of POGIL 68% average. McKnight, 2004

  • Effectiveness

  • Can be used in large classes.

  • Can be hybridized (some lecture, some POGIL).

  • Content coverage is similar

    • Studies comparing POGIL trained vs, lecture trained students going into one Organic Chem 1 section. No difference in performance, but higher retention to Organic 2 by POGIL students.

Wrap Up

  • Group Activity

Discuss how you might replace one lecture in a current course with one that is POGIL-like.

  • MANAGER : Your group has 20 min. Please make sure that each person has a chance to contribute.

  • RECORDER: Jot down some notes on the reverse of the exit pass. We will collate these to send to the participants.

  • REPORTER: Be prepared to represent the group in discussion after the activity.
