Event description


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

Want the skills and know how to design empowering, engaging and memorable training that really helps people learn? Then this is the course for you!

During this highly interactive 2 day course you learn the most current “cognitive neuroscience” about effective instruction – how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves and uses knowledge. You will 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.

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.


After participating in this informative and interactive program, you will be able to:

  • 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.
  • Recognise these six learning principles in action.
  • Use these principles in any learning environment: classroom, elearning, one-on-one, small and large group instruction.
  • 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.
  • Utilise a trainer’s tool-bag of practical tips and activities – a collection of best practices that you created during the training program.
  • For Agile coaches and Scrum trainers: Combine Agile and Scrum processes and principles with Accelerated Learning to create collaborative, interactive, fun and memorable learning experiences.


  • Gain the trainer’s tool-bag of practical, brain-based instructional strategies you can put to use immediately in your own training programs.
  • Receive a 55-page workbook filled with new resources and brain science information – the workbook is only available with this train-the-trainer program.
  • Get two copies 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.
