IMPLEMENTING PROCESS ORIENTED GUIDED INQUIRY LEARNING (POGIL) IN UNDERGRADUATE BIOMECHANICS: LESSONS LEARNED BY A NOVICE
Keywords: teaching, kinesiology
AbstractProcess Oriented Guided Inquiry (POGIL) uses cooperative learning activities to teach content and to actively engage students in inquiry, analytical thinking, and teamwork. It has been used extensively in Chemistry education, but its use is not well documented in other areas. This is a summary of the initial implementation of POGIL in a university Biomechanics course and includes the benefits, challenges, and recommendations for teachers interested in using this effective instructional strategy.
