Barbara R. Blackburn talks with me about her latest book Rigor in the Remote Learning Classroom: Instructional Tips and Strategies. This is episode 356 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
Barbara R. Blackburn, named a Top 30 Global Guru in Education, has dedicated her life to raising the level of rigor and motivation for professional educators and students alike. What differentiates Barbara’s over 25 books are her easily executable concrete examples based on decades of experience as a teacher, professor and consultant.
Barbara’s dedication to education was inspired in her early years by her parents. Her father’s doctorate and lifetime career as a professor taught her the importance of professional training. Her mother’s career as a school secretary shaped Barbara’s appreciation of the effort all staff play in the education of every student.
Barbara has taught early childhood, elementary, middle and high school students and has served as an educational consultant for three publishing companies. She holds a master’s degree in school administration and was certified as a teacher and school principal in North Carolina.
She received her PhD in Curriculum and Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 2006, she received the award for Outstanding Junior Professor at Winthrop University. She left her position at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to write and speak full time.
In addition to speaking at state, national and international conferences, she regularly presents workshops for teachers and administrators in elementary, middle and high schools. Her workshops are lively and engaging and filled with practical information. Her most popular seminars include:
