Event Details

Training from the BACK of the Room! is a two day course that enables you to 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 from the BACK of the Room (TBR) workshop, 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".

Whether you are a trainer, instructional designer, an agile coach or someone who wants to improve presentation skills, this workshop is for YOU!

WE PRACTICE WHAT WE TEACH:
This training is a learning experience made for the learner: you. We guarantee that you will take these lessons and share the joy of learning with your own students and clients in an active, creative and fun way; a way that makes the information stick. Like us, you will apply the most current cognitive neuroscience about effective instructions to design and deliver courses and trainings that are truly brain-friendly.

 

In our workshop you will experience yourself how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves and uses knowledge in creative, collaborative ways. Exploring the principles of Training from the BACK of the Room! is packed with interactive learning, experiments, activity and fun.

And it’s practical: your outcome is about your topics and materials.

While you learn about it, you can combine the material you already use with the brain-based concepts and strategies of Training from the BACK of the Room! Additional to this you can choose and use helpful activities and tools to create more effective training classes, programs or other instructional formats. Regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of the class, or level of learners!
