The goal of the workshop is to introduce faculty to the POGIL instructional method, existing mathematics activities, facilitation techniques and activity authoring strategies. 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 class using existing materials (in Pre-calculus and Calculus 1), and to begin writing their own POGIL materials for other courses. Participants will discuss their experiences and receive feedback on their writing via an online discussion board during fall 2014. They will have the opportunity to share their results and learn more about advanced writing strategies at the 2015 Joint Meetings, and will become members of the extensive interdisciplinary network of POGIL practitioners.
