The laboratory content of the course is divided into six topics, each with a unique focus. Each topic is presented in two sessions: (1) a case-study session and (2) a laboratory session. These sessions meet in succession and are designed so that focus topics are introduced in the case-study and extended in the laboratory. In case study, the relevance of chemistry to the focus topic is developed and experimental strategies and methods are discussed and demonstrated. In the laboratory, students conduct experiments, acquire data, and analyze results to further their understanding of the selected chemical systems. Please check the course syllabus for the specific dates of the case study and laboratory meetings and check MyUI for your meeting time and room assignment information. MyUI is available at https://myui.uiowa.edu/my-ui/home.page. The course syllabus can be obtained on the CHEM:1120 course web page which can be accessed through Iowa Courses Online (ICON) available at http://icon.uiowa.edu.
The materials in this project are specifically designed for a third-year Spanish Writing course, offering guidance to instructors on how to develop each of the four modules that constitute the course: Description, narration, argumentation, and exposition.
For each of the modules, a variety of resources are presented, including peer review training sessions, classroom activities, handouts to guide students’ writing processes, and peer review guidelines. These resources follow the methodology of writing through workshops (“Talleres”) and may be used in support of the current course materials (i.e., textbook “Taller de Escritores”).
The OER resources are also helpful for students, because they provide clear guidance on how to write and peer review each of the essays, and they further specify the assessment rubrics according to the curricular contents of the of the Spanish Writing course.

POGIL is a research-based instruction strategy comprising peer learning, development of process skills, and activities that are designed around the constructivist theory of learning cycles (pogil.org).
Guided Inquiry Activities for Programming Language Concepts is a collection of activities intended to support the use of POGIL in intermediate-level undergraduate computer science courses on functional programming and the implementation of programming languages.
Disclaimer: These activities have not yet undergone the peer-review process of The POGIL Project and so cannot be labeled "POGIL activities" ; however, they are designed based on the POGIL approach to designing activities.
