Class Overview:

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-ha nd 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 tool bag 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, 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".

Who should attend?

  • Teachers/Trainers
  • Speakers/Presenters
  • Agile Coaches & Trainers
  • Anyone who needs to engage an audience!
