Event Details

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.

Training from the back of the roomDiscover 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 thousands of trainers, teachers, and Scrum and Agile coaches worldwide.

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 55-page workbook filled with new resources and brain science information – the workbook is only available with this train-the-trainer program. 

This course is facilitated by Training from the BACK of the Room certified trainers and agile coaches Simon Powers and Ben Maynard

You’ll also receive a copy of Sharon Bowman’s best-selling book Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick, and a copy of her globally acclaimed book Training from the BACK of the Room.

  • Explain and define the most current brain science about human learning – information that is directly applicable to all instruction, whether in classrooms, one-on-one, or computer-based.
  • Apply “The Six Trumps”– six learning principles based on brain science that will significantly enhance learning and retention, regardless of the content being taught.
  • Recognize these six learning principles in action.

  • Design any learning experience using “The 4Cs Map” as your guide – a four-step brain-based instructional design and delivery model.
  • Combine brain science and technology and enhance learning by using both in creative, collaborative ways.
  • Access new resources that will expand your knowledge of the most current brain science about human learning.
  • Utilize a trainer’s toolbag of practical tips and activities – a collection of best practices that you created during the training program.
