Barbara Oakley

Barbara Oakley defied the odds (and her early educators) by overcoming perceived weaknesses in math and science to become a professor of engineering at Oakland University. She’s also the Ramón y Cajal Distinguished Scholar of Global Digital Learning at McMaster University, where she teaches two massive open online courses (MOOCs)—Learning How to Learn and Mindshift—with esteemed neuroscientist, Terrence Sejnowski. Oakley’s most recently published work, Mindshift, discusses overcoming learning “handicaps”—including the impostor syndrome or advancing age—by the simple, yet powerful, act of persistence.

I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.
