Dr. Thrift emphasizes students’ active engagement, often through experiential activities and assignments that synthesize theoretical knowledge and creative practice. Class projects like digital storytelling, video chain letters, and multi-media memoirs inspire her SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) research, which examines the use of feminist, digital, and creative pedagogies to cultivate an inclusive and fun learning environment that supports student success.
