Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the workshop, participants will:
¥ Be familiar with the practices for approaching difficult advising topics with students
¥ Learn appreciate advising strategies that can be used to broach difficult advising topics

POGIL is a very structured technique for using collaborative groups in large classes. It was designed by college Chemistry and Biology faculty and has been shown to be effective in teaching science as a creative process and engaging students in large classrooms. It is being expanded to other disciplines besides science. Participants in this workshop will view a TED talk on POGIL before the workshop, participate in a POGIL activity, and then design a POGIL activity to take back to their classroom.
