This class is taught using a teaching technique known as Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL).  If you would like more detailed information about POGIL.  You may visit the link below:

Research indicates that effective learning occurs for most people when they can:

1) construct their own understanding based on their own life experiences and abilities.

2) discuss and interact with others about the new content they are learning.

With this in mind, POGIL classrooms have students working on content primarily in groups with the instructor acting as a facilitator and not a lecturer.  If you want to see a POGIL classroom in action watch the following video:
