Training from the BACK of the Room! November 18-19, 2013
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.
Leave this train-the-trainer event with a trainer’s toolbag of practical, brain-based instructional strategies you can put to use immediately in your own training programs. You’ll also leave with a 100-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.”

Past students say…
Two days packed with fun, images, activities, and learning. A must for every trainer and teacher. It will change how you approach your classes. Sharon trains perfectly from the BACK of the room.
I would love to offer a training with her in my own geographical area.
