- Conclusion activities (summarising and reflecting on the learning, action plans)
- Cognitive Dissonance, Reticular Activating System and the Triune Brain
- Introduction to Accelerated Learning and the 4Cs - design and delivery model
- General design and delivery reminders
- Creating a 4Cs map - first draft
- Practical task - design your own training session (application of the 4Cs map and toolbox strategies to specific training topics)

What you will learn
Join Teri Frith and learn about six learning principles based on current brain research, and how to apply these in your training.
You will also explore the 4Cs Map – a powerful 4-step instructional design and delivery model – and use it to create your own training plan specific to a topic you teach.
You will collect a multitude of new ideas, activities, and resources throughout the course, which can be put into practice the very next day.
During the class, you will practise six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science, then you apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach others.
You will collect dozens of interactive instructional strategies you can use with any topic and any group of learners.
You also receive a 55-page resource workbook that is only available with this program, 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.”
The "Training from the BACK of the room" workshop is suitable for teachers, facilitators and coaches, as well as scrum masters and project managers. People with some experience of delivering training will get the most out of this course.
Prior to joining the workshop, you will be asked to complete three short pre-course tasks:
- 3 weeks before - questionnaire to complete about your experience and intended learning outcomes from the course
- 2 weeks before - suggested reading to introduce some of the brain science principles
- 1 week before - joining the TBR slack community.
The course builds on your existing knowledge of how humans learn, so the pre-course reading is highly recommended and will be referred to in one of the learning activities.
