In this high energy, practical and memorable course written by Sharon Bowman, you’ll explore current “cognitive neuroscience” that explains how the human brain really learns.

Toss out outdated assumptions, pull in six specific learning principles based on current brain science, and learn how to apply them to your training programs.

Leave with dozens of new ideas, activities, and resources to enhance what you already know about brain-based learning and training.

Course Content

You will learn about six powerful learning principles based on the best of brain science, and how to apply these principles every time you train, teach, coach or facilitate others.

You will also explore the 4Cs Map – a powerful 4-step instructional design and delivery model based on accelerated learning principles.  You will 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.

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.”
