Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Introduction to POGIL Biochemistry

Workshop Title: Introduction to POGIL Biochemistry
Descrption: Process oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) has been used in the teaching of all sub-disciplines of college chemistry. However, implementing POGIL in upper division biochemistry courses presents some unique challenges that distinguish teaching these courses from teaching in general and organic course sequences. The goal of this workshop is to introduce majors-level biochemistry instructors to implementation of POGIL in the biochemistry classroom. This workshop will engage participants in active learning strategies by modeling classroom structure and formative assessment techniques using biochemistry materials. Topics to be addressed may include funded initiatives in biochemistry, availability and development of materials, techniques aimed at teaching applications as opposed to foundational concepts, and coping with student resistance. This workshop will include only a brief general introduction to POGIL and therefore familiarity with the approach would be helpful. Although the workshop is targeted for those just beginning to use POGIL in biochemistry, experienced implementers may gain additional insights on classroom implementation and could benefit from connecting with a community of biochemists interested in POGIL.
