Event Details

Training from the Back of the Room:

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.


All meals are included in the course fee  (please note any dietary restrictions). 

You will receive: A copy of the Sharon’s newest book Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick A copy of her best-selling book Training from the BACK of the Room! A third book, 65 Ways to Step Aside and Let Them Learn. A copy of a 55-page workbook that is only available with this program – a wonderful resource for use during and after the workshop.
