Barbara Robertson has been practicing the art of teaching for over 34 years. The latest research clearly shows that sitting quietly and listening to a lecture, in person or online, is not likely to bring about positive behavior change.
Barbara’s dynamic presentation style weaves in discussion, small and large group exercises, and personal reflection to help the learner absorb and incorporate the ideas which are presented. Research in the area of lactation is exploding. Keeping up with the latest information is critical for a top-notch educational experience. Because Barbara is a breastfeeding nerd this is an important part of any presentation she gives. Research also shows that humor is important for engagement. Barbara presents in a way that is easy to listen to and a joy to laugh with. Because she teaches a 90-hour breastfeeding course, she can present on almost any subject and is happy to create or customize a presentation for you.
