LAST CHANCE! Enrollment ends forever August 1!

Let's Work Together!



Hi, I'm Barbi! I help college professors create engaging lectures. I share practical and creative teaching strategies you can easily add to your lectures so you can engage students and improve learning.


A brief background . . .

My faculty development career began 22 years ago (time flies!). I worked in every position (from intern to director!) in a teaching center at a large research university. I also directed professional development programs for graduate student and postdocs and held an adjunct professor position where I taught undergraduate and graduate courses. Then, in 2011, I wanted to take the next step in my career, so I hit the road and started traveling and speaking professionally.


Fast forward to today . . .
I have had the opportunity to work with professors and educators from every type of college and university. I have been an invited keynote speaker and facilitator for 3,500+ events for 25,000+ educators from around the world representing nearly every academic discipline and profession within industry, education, government, and nonprofit settings. These include local, state, national, and international conferences in higher education. I have also published several scholarly articles and seven books including Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice for Faculty*  


Now, I focus on hosting the Lecture Breakers podcast, writing, and facilitating Lecture Breakers online course Designing and Facilitating Successful Active Learning Experiences for faculty. I want to make it easy for campuses to provide high-quality, flexible, and practical ways to help professors create engaging lectures. 

My husband, son, and I live in North Carolina, and we enjoy traveling as much as we can!

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