Event description
Become an engaging and skilled virtual trainer leveraging brain-based learning techniques

About this event

In this truly blended learning experience, you will attend 5 highly interactive sessions over the course of 2 weeks, with spaced learning opportunities in between. Together we will explore how the human brain really learns which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. We will introduce you to “cognitive neuroscience” concepts – the brain science behind all effective instructional design and human learning.

During this virtual setting, you’ll explore six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science. You’ll be able to apply these principles every time you train, teach, instruct, facilitate or coach others. You’ll also experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies that you can use with any topic and any group of learners. You’ll use the 4Cs Map – a powerful 4-step instructional design and delivery model – to create a training plan specific to a topic you already teach.
