POGIL stands for Process Oriented Guided Inquiry which is an activity based strategy for teaching and learning. POGIL provides Student Centred Methodology and structure that is consistent with the way people learn and achieve. POGIL workshops were conducted in the school in a phased manner by Dr. Kelly Butler, Dr. Daniel Libby and Dr. Cliffton Kussmaul, American Professors.
The main objective of POGIL is to help the students to master the discipline, content and develop essential learning skills simultaneously. This module explains the relationship between three primary components of POGIL: Cooperative Learning, Guided Inquiry, and Meta-cognition. It also offers advice on implementing POGIL in the classroom and provides evidence that POGIL instruction produces better understanding and higher grades compared to the conventional method of teaching.
Furthermore, eight teachers went for a 3-day training programme at VNR Vignan Jyothi Engineering College. There they received personalised training to implement POGIL methodology in classroom teaching. The teachers were excited after understanding the process of POGIL and keen to implement it by means of teaching, learning and developing activities in the class room.
