Process-Oriented Guided-Inquiry Learning activities for a upper-level Biochemistry course will be presented. This is a course taken by junior and senior level chemistry and biology majors, most of which are going to some kind of medical professional school. Students at this level can/should be expected to complete the exploration phase before class. This allows them to participate in the more difficult concept invention phase of learning within their group. Activities that follow this format will be presented. Additionally, insights and lessons learned will be presented.
