Join this class to experience the most current "cognitive neuroscience" about effective instruction.

Drawing on Sharon Bowman's best-selling books Training from the BACK of the Room and Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick, this two-day program explores how the human brain really learns, which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning.
Training from the Back of the Room (TBR) is the favorite train-the-trainer resource of Scrum and Agile coaches and trainers around the world.

Over the two days, you will experience and learn:
  • Content-independent, brain-based interactive strategies. You will be able to use them right away with any topic and any curriculum (even the most technical, dry, or boring subjects).
  • Learning activities. All the learning activities that you'll collect during the class are 1- to 5-minutes in length, which means that they're really easy to insert into any class, even the content-heavy ones.
  • Brain-science principles. You'll experience everything you'll be learning about, including all the brain science principles that make learner-centered, brain-based instruction so successful and exciting.
  • How to design your own classes. You'll design one of your own classes or training programs, using your own topic, your trainer's toolkit strategies, and the instructional design model called "The 4Cs Map." And you'll receive peer feedback to help you polish what you've designed.
  • Resources. The class provides 2 books and 1 workbook, a trainer's toolkit full of strategies you can use immediately, the 4Cs Map, innovative and interactive ways to use PowerPoint, fun learning aids; and dozens of other digital resources to enhance your own teaching and training skills.
