Professor Oakley’s work focuses on the complex relationship between neuroscience and social behavior. Mindshift reveals how we can overcome stereotypes and preconceived ideas about what is possible for us to learn and become. Dr. Oakley shepherds us past simplistic ideas of “aptitude” and “ability,” which provide only a snapshot of who we are now—with little consideration about how we can change.
Dr. Barbara Oakley is a Professor of Engineering at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan and the Ramón y Cajal Distinguished Scholar of Global Digital Learning at McMaster University. Her books Mindshift and A Mind for Numbers are bestsellers, and she teaches the world’s largest online course, with 2 million students.
