Event description
Experience how neuroscience helps to accelerate content retention, maximize learning effectiveness, and keep your audience truly engaged!

About this Event

EARLY BIRD PRICING AVAILABLE THROUGH MARCH 1ST - REGISTER SOON!

Class Overview:

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.

Leave this train-the-trainer event with a trainer's tool bag of practical, brain-based instructional strategies you can put to use immediately in your own training programs. You'll also leave with a 55 - page workbook filled with new resources and brain science information, as well as copies of Sharon Bowman's best-selling books: "Training from the BACK of the Room" and "Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick".

About The Instructor:

Katjarina “Katja” Hurt is the training manager and lead instructor for Anchorpoint Response. In 2018, Katja founded Wilderness Chaplains, a nondenominational wilderness crisis response organization from which Anchorpoint Response was developed. Her training approach is centered around meeting the needs of adult learners who seek research based, field-applicable knowledge and skills. She is an approved trainer for Sharon Bowman’s “Training from the BACK of the Room,” and the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation’s “Assisting Individuals in Crisis” and “Group Crisis Intervention” programs.

Katja's training background includes over a decade of facilitating courses for various first-response agencies from urban public safety teams to remote rescuers and ski patrollers. Prior to launching Wilderness Chaplains and Anchorpoint Response, Katja worked for the Department of Corrections as a Curriculum Specialist and Instructor-Trainer, traveling around Washington State to on-board new instructors and provide annual in-service training in community and correctional settings. Her position with training and development followed several years as a field officer providing probation and parole supervision for high level offenders in Washington and Missouri. She has always been dedicated to public service and has a passion for the neuroscience behind adult learning and behavior change.

When she is not teaching, Katja enjoys spending time outdoors in her Pacific Northwest home. She is an avid mountaineer, sea kayaker, and skier who enjoys adventuring with her dogs and introducing people to the beauty of nature.
