Collaborative Training

The Goal of a Collaborative Feedback Training session is to ensure the highest quality peer feedback process. This free, online videoconference is hosted approximately three times a year (see schedule) and will calibrate PAC authors and reviewers to the peer feedback rubrics. In addition, the session will orient new users to the purpose of the PAC and the activity submission process. All authors and reviewers must complete a Collaborative Feedback Training session prior to gaining access to posted activities.

Prerequisite Knowledge

It is assumed that each participant will have completed a Fundamentals of POGIL workshop and be familiar with the essential elements of a POGIL activity and application of the POGIL feedback rubrics. 

Session Information

This one-hour training session is an introduction to reviewing activities submitted to the POGIL Activity Clearinghouse (PAC).

  • Prior to the session, participants will use the PAC website to individually review a draft POGIL activity, using POGIL rubrics.
  • During the session, participants will share their responses with a team of 2-3 other reviewers and work towards achieving consensus on how best to apply the rubrics. Discussion among reviewers will provide calibration of rubric scores and common issues found in draft activities will be highlighted.
