In this practical and interactive virtual class, you’ll explore the current “cognitive neuroscience” that explains how all humans learn. With Training from the BACK of the Room Virtual Edition, you’ll discover 6 specific brain-science principles and a 4-step instructional design model that you can use in your own virtual teaching and training. And you’ll leave with dozens of new ideas, activities, resources, and a new “Gold Standard” for virtual instruction and learning. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Apply six learning principles based on current brain research every time you deliver virtual training, regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of group, or level of learners.
  • Use the 4Cs Map as a training design and delivery model for brain-based virtual instruction.
  • Create virtual training sessions that combine your own topic and materials with the brain-based virtual learning concepts and strategies from the class and demonstrate how to leverage the strengths of virtual learning environments.
  • Explain to colleagues your understanding of cognitive science as it applies to learning, training and memory in both virtual and face-to-face environments.
  • Choose from dozens of virtual brain-based learning activities for all topics.
  • Become an active member of the TBR-VE Class Group, a community that collaborates and encourages its members to be the best that they can be!

“A great approach to training based on neuroscience, which is very engaging and fun. The trainers are clearly experienced, knowledgeable, and have a warm, comforting approach. They use the approaches they're teaching you to teach you!“ Avipaul Bhandari, Agile Coach, UK.

“You will learn lots about how to run training that is both effective and enjoyable. It is a necessary prerequisite to whatever training that you want to deliver in the future.” Vicky Harston, Systems Thinking Lead in Financial Services, UK.

“A must-have for anyone teaching or training anyone else, from young to old! This method is going to only inspire and never frustrate, as some old fashioned methods unfortunately still do.” Azra Meyer, IT Consultant, Germany.
