POGIL is an acronym for Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning. Because POGIL is a student-centered instructional approach, in a typical POGIL classroom or laboratory, students work in small teams with the instructor acting as a facilitator. The student teams use intentionally designed activities that generally follow the learning cycle paradigm. POGIL is a student-centered instructional strategy that provides opportunities to teach both content and key process skills at the same time.
