Hi, I'm Barbi!

I know how challenging it is to come up with new, creative ways to engage your students. Every day, when you arrive (or login) to your classroom, you are responsible for creating a space for students to learn from you and from each other.

It’s not an easy task! But, you can do it! I can help.

I create resources, teach online courses, and host virtual events to support you in teaching and connect you with other educators.

My goal is to celebrate what you're are already doing and encourage you to try new ideas to engage students and improve learning.

I'm so glad you are here, and I look forward to learning with you!

The Lecture Breakers conference was the best conference I have attended! I was so impressed with the topics, the speakers, and the overall organization of the event. Thank you Barbi!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your weekly teaching tips! I've used each one throughout the semester. The podcasts are excellent as well! Thank you so much!

Barbi's webinar was a game changer for my Zoom sessions with my students. One student left feedback today: "Keep doing the fun activities during Zoom calls. I like to feel that we, as students, are being engaged and not just lectured at.

The evaluations of the workshop, and Dr. Honeycutt were stellar, not only because of her knowledge, but also because of her engaging style, and the variety of hands-on activities.

Dr. Honeycutt's workshop was probably the best session I attended during the whole conference. She was very dynamic and engaged us right from the start.
