This panel discussion will focus on innovative pedagogies for teaching introductory materials courses. The first brief presentation gives an overview of the general characteristics of active learning embodied by the general approach of inductive teaching methods. This is then followed by presentation of the broadly used innovative pedagogies of Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) and Just-in-Time-Teaching (JiTT) and Inquiry Learning. The implementation of active learning tools in a setting with a diverse populations is then discussed. Finally, the impact on a department's students and faculty of implementing active methods, such as problem and project base learning, at a broad curricular level is considered. After the panel members make their brief presentations, this will be followed by breakout focus group discussions, group reports, and a wrap-up with open discussion.
