Course Overview

Training from the Back of the Room (2 Day):

Take your training skills to a more advanced level as you discover how the human brain really learns which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. Explore the most current "cognitive neuroscience" about effective instruction - how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves and uses knowledge. Discover six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science, then apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach others.

These Accelerated Learning principles go hand-in-hand with team-based Agile and Scrum processes and principles. If you are an Agile coach or Scrum trainer, you will be especially pleased to discover how to combine Agile/Scrum concepts with collaborative learner-engagement.

During this dynamic, two-day training program, you will also practice using the 4Cs instructional design "map" with the content you teach, regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of the class, or level of learners. The 4Cs is a brain-based, four-step, Accelerated Learning instructional design model now used by hundreds of Agile coaches and Scrum trainers around the world.

Innovation Through Visualisation (1 Day):

The first two-days of Training from the Back of the Room (TBR) will include a live Illustrator, Stuart Young who will do a live illustration during the TBR. On the third day, Stuart will enhance what you learned during Training from the Back of the Room through Innovation through Visualization. This one-day workshop has been created to provide you with the winning formula needed to express your ideas visually.

From start to finish you will be guided through fun, bite-sized exercises that will collectively enable you to successfully captivate a group through pictures.

Whether you wish to enhance your facilitation skills, make collaborative design thinking a key enabler within your team, classrooms, or simply gain the confidence you need to draw live in front of an audience, this workshop is for you.

The workshop will include the following building blocks to successful visualization:

  • Practicing basic shapes before progressing to idea-focused drawings
  • Getting to grips with drawing people, hands and faces
  • Active listening exercises
  • Collaborative design/ sketching
  • Handwriting techniques
  • Storyboarding
  • Interactive design
  • Layout, flow and structure patterns
  • The use of Graphic templates
  • Problems solving/ idea mapping tools and techniques

Tested and proven: a picture literally speaks a thousand words. Watch what excited participants say about the visulatization experience at the Scrum Coaching Retreat in San Diego.  Click here for a video. San Diego Video
