In a Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) classroom, students work cooperatively in self-managed small groups. The group work is focused on activities that are carefully designed and scaffolded to enable students to develop important concepts. In addition, the learning environment is structured to support the development of process skills of great value in the workplace and in life. The instructor’s role is to facilitate the development of student concepts and process skills.
