Training from the Back of the Room (Created by Sharon Bowman) is a training format and collection of techniques that harness Neuroscience to do your training as brain-friendly as possible to increase its effectiveness; your attendees will learn and retain so much more. But it’s so much more than that; it’s a new way of approaching training and group work, it’s inspiring and interactive, and the focus is on the service of the learner.

Preparing knowledge in an engaging, “brain-friendly,” and interactive way is a compelling prerequisite for attendees to reflect on their own behavior, try out a new behavior, and (want to) apply it in their day-to-day life. This training supports you in designing effective training sequences.

Join a growing number of learning specialists that ensure learning sticks!

Your Learning Outcomes 

In this 2-day in-person TBR Practitioner Class, you’ll explore how the human brain really learns, which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. And you’ll be introduced to “cognitive neuroscience” concepts – the brain science behind all effective instructional design and human learning.

During the class, you will:

Explore six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science.

Apply these principles every time you train, teach, instruct, or coach others.

Experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies that you can use with any topic and any group of learners.

Use the 4Cs Map – a powerful 4-step instructional design and delivery model – to design any class or training you facilitate.

Create a training plan specific to a topic you already teach.

Receive a 55-page resource workbook that is only available with this class, as well as hard copies of Sharon Bowman’s best-selling books: ”Training from the BACK of the Room!” and “Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick.”
