Training from the Back of the Room
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. Apply the same practices to make your meetings much more fun and productive.
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.”
Because you care for your students, take the time to attend this class. Learn how many of the classic approaches to learning do more harm them good. Then find new ways to teach that will inspire and transform your students.
The Balanced Difference
At Balanced Agility, we believe that there is more than just a class, a workshop or a few hours spent together that make up a learning experience. We also provide:
Our BA Primers leading up to the class to get you ready and thinking about what we will be working on in our time together – these may take the form of pre-reading, blog articles or a few items to work on before our time together
The BA Toolkits you will emerge from your class with provide real and effective tools that you can use on the ground with your teams the days following training.
Include yourself in the BA Community by networking in class and actively participating after the class in the community of fellow practitioners that’s being established in your area.
