Training from the BACK of the room

Virtual Edition

Become a skillful virtual trainer leveraging Brain Science to make the learning stick.

The official “Training from the BACK of the Room – virtual edition” (TBR-VE) Practitioner course 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 5-modules course over 5 days, you’ll explore how the human brain really learns, which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. you will also be introduced to “cognitive neuroscience” concepts – the brain science behind all effective instructional design and human learning.

Target Audience: Teachers, trainers, facilitators, coaches, and speakers

Currently no planned cuourses. 

We practise what we teach

During this virtual setting, you’ll explore six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science. You’ll be able to apply these principles every time you train, teach, instruct, or coach others. You’ll also experience and collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies that you can use with any topic and any group of learners.

You’ll use the 4Cs Map – a powerful 4-step instructional design and delivery model – to create a training plan specific to a topic you already teach.


Learning Outcomes

Learn how to keep the participants engaged and be interactive throughout the session to keep the energy flowing and learning happening. 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. Experience an asynchronous & synchronous approach to learning.
