Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL)
Human Anatomy and Physiology
We are currently looking for anatomy and physiology instructors to review the following six activities. Reviewers should have previous POGIL experience.
Send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in reviewing one of the following activities:
Note: After you review one activity, we'll send you a second.
Blood Hematocrit Interpretation
Introduction to Digestive Enzymes
Self vs. Non-Self (Introduction to Immune System)
Vaccinations - Part 1, 2, and 3 (1 - small pox, 2 - polio, and 3 - DPT)
Inside the Body vs Outside the Body
VO2 Maximum Lab Activity - Estimation of VO2 Max values
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You will be asked to fill out an evaluation form after your students have complted the activity.
The first, original, set of POGIL activities have now been endorsed.
These activites are currently in final production, and not available at this time. We hope they are available in early December.
Intro. to Homeostasis
Hormones and Osteoporosis
Determinants of Blood Oxygen Content
Plans are in the works to make the above activities available to HAPS members as a benefit of membership, and also for purchase through the POGIL Press program.
A complete set of activites, for a two semester A & P course, are being published by Dr. Patrick Brown sometime in 2014.
(See a list of Dr. Brown's activities at the bottom of this web page.)
At this time there are NO official POGIL materials for A & P, but there are several in the pipeline.
Here is an activity that we are providing as an example:
If you intend to use POGIL materials in your classroom, we highly recommend attending a POGIL workshop to learn the POGIL teaching method.
- Cards for Student Roles (pdf file) (use one set of cards for each group)
- Process Analyst Report Form (pdf file)
- Evidence of Personal Effectiveness Resport Sheet (pdf file)
- High School Biology POGIL (contains some activites that coule be used in A & P)
- Advanced Placement Biology POGIL Workbook.
- High School Chemistry POGIL
