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.

 

Integrating Cognitive Science with Innovative Teaching in STEM Disciplines

Integrating Cognitive Science with Innovative Teaching in STEM Disciplines

This volume collects the ideas and insights discussed at a novel conference, the Integrating Cognitive Science with Innovative Teaching in STEM Disciplines Conference, which was held September 27-28, 2012 at Washington University in St. Louis. With funding from the James S. McDonnell Foundation, the conference was hosted by Washington University’s Center for Integrative Research on Cognition, Learning, and Education (CIRCLE), a center established in 2011.
