About this Event

Training from the Back of the Room is a fresh approach to learning and training.

Based on cognitive neuroscience without boring lectures and bleak corporate slides.

TBR teaches you how to engage 5 senses, keep your learners active and engaged throughout the class.

Developed by Sharon Bowman, the “Training from the Back of the Room” is now recognized internationally as one of the most effective frameworks for accelerated learning.

Highly experiential, this workshop will introduce you to 6 learning principles that maximize learning effectiveness and accelerate content retention. In this workshop, you will learn by doing! Over 65 quick brain-based activities will help you solidify research concepts as well as show you new tools and facilitation techniques you can immediately apply with your teams.

In this workshop, you will get to know about "The 4C Map" - a brain-based instructional design and delivery model from Accelerated Learning. Best part - everyone in the class will get to build one for their training topic and will get feedback from the TBR trainers.

“Engaging, Fun, Practical. Take this course if you teach, present, train, coach or facilitate. Your clients will thank you!”

On Thursday, May 14 & Friday, May 15, 2020.

Two instructors, double the fun. Dana Pylayeva and Kriti Jaising experience their energy and fall in love with TBR. Bring this innovative training style to your environments.

10% of proceeds from this event will be donated to a Charity.

Dana Pylayeva:

I am Dana Pylayeva, the Founder and Principal Coach at Agile Play Consulting. I love everything that helps to engage people I train or the teams I coach – Agile games, Open Space Technology, LEGO and (you guessed it!) the Training from the Back of the Room. In fact, after taking the course with Sharon, I completely redesigned all my trainings. I am the author of “Introduction to DevOps with Lego, Chocolate and Scrum Game” and even that got so much better with 4Cs!

I’ve trained teams in US, Canada, Ireland, Japan and UK, I’ve spoken at 35 conferences in 15 countries and everywhere people enjoy being engaged in the class, staying alert and focused as well as having fun while learning. And you know what? TBR helps create psychological safety in the class and maximizes learning retention. My mission now is to help you discover the power of TBR and take your trainings, presentations or team meetings to the next level! Twitter: @DanaPylayeva

Kriti Jaising:

I am Kriti Jaising, the Founder and a Trainer at Concepts & Beyond Inc. I have over 20 years experience in advertising, digital marketing and consumer research. Mother of 2, I have been on the Board of Directors of ECPTA from last 3 years. Along with being actively involved in my children’s school life, planning & executing numerous educational and fun activities, I get to interact closely with the School system, Superintendent, teachers and students. This exposure opened my eyes to the dynamic changes in the learning landscape. This has drawn me to be a TBR Practitioner & Trainer. As a Trainer and Founder of Concepts & Beyond, I want to extend the outreach of TBR, implementing the values of Training from the Back of the Room into sales, consumer research, and education therefore improving presentations and the quality of learning as whole. After working in several different fields over the years I have witnessed the room for these fields to grow and heed the values of TBR.
