In this workshop we will introduce faculty to the POGIL instructional method, activity authoring techniques, and to the activities recently developed by the workshop leaders for Calculus I. Participants will prepare for the workshop by reading a selection of articles, choosing a topic for an activity they will draft during the workshop, and constructing learning goals for this activity. By the end of the workshop, participants will be trained in both POGIL facilitation and activity writing strategies. They will be able to run a POGIL Calculus I class using the newly developed materials (which they will receive during the workshop), and to begin writing their own POGIL materials for other courses. Participants will discuss their experiences via an online discussion board during fall 2013, and will have the opportunity to share their results at the 2014 Joint Meetings. They will also become members of the extensive interdisciplinary network of POGIL practitioners.
