Training from the Back of the Room

Welcome to the best of teaching, training, and learning!

The official 2-day in-person “Training from the BACK of the Room” (TBR) Practitioner Class is a globally acclaimed, interactive, skills-building train-the-trainer class for anyone who is a trainer, teacher, instructor, coach, or facilitator of learning.

In this 2-day in-person TBR Practitioner Class, you’ll explore how the human brain 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.

All attendees will get a copy of the bestselling book "Training from the Back of the Room! 65 Ways to Step Aside and Let Them Learn" by Sharon L Bowman.

During the class, you will explore six powerful learning principles based on the best in brain science:

  • Images Trumps Words
  • Talking Trumps Listening
  • Movement Trumps Sitting
  • Writing Trumps Reading
  • Shorter Trumps Longer
  • Different Trumps Same

You will also:

  • Apply these principles every time you train, teach, instruct, or coach others.
  • Experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies you can use with any topic and 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.

BONUS: Hard copies of Sharon Bowman’s best-selling books: ”Training from the BACK of the Room!” and “Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick.”
