About the event

 The official 2-day “Training from the Back of the Room” (TBR) Practitioner class is a globally-acclaimed, interactive, skills building workshop for anyone who is a trainer, teacher, instructor, coach, facilitator, or presenter of ideas. 

TBR is a fresh approach to learning, training, and presenting. Based on the latest in cognitive neuroscience (how the human brain learns), TBR teaches you how to engage the 5 senses to keep your participants active and engaged throughout your session. Developed by Sharon Bowman, the “Training from the Back of the Room” is now recognized internationally as one of the most effective frameworks for accelerated learning.

Highly experiential, this workshop will introduce you to 6 learning principles that maximize learning effectiveness, accelerate content retention, and engage audiences. In this workshop, you will learn by doing, applying over 65 quick brain-based activities that you can apply every time you train, teach, instruct, or present ideas to others. 

Additionally, you will experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies that you can use with any topic and any group of learners. You’ll use "The 4C Map" - a powerful 4-step brain-based instructional design and delivery model to create a training/delivery plan specific to a topic from your context. 

“Engaging, Fun, Practical. If you teach, present, train, coach or facilitate. This workshop is a must have. Your clients, your audience will thank you!”
