An advocate of peer learning and group work, Professor Frey brings years of expertise in STEM education and in research on STEM pedagogies, including multiple-strategy active-learning approaches such as Peer-led Team Learning (PLTL) and Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL). 

Frey's interests include developing and evaluating new pedagogical methods, including those that utilize active- and collaborative-learning techniques. Currently, her research projects focus on three broad areas: introductory learning in STEM, teaching with technology, and promoting faculty development of scholarship on teaching and learning.
