Are you a teacher, trainer or coach who has been looking for ways to make your curriculum more engaging, hands-on, actionable or fun? Do you struggle to create curriculum that encourages your students to learn collaboratively, practice what they've learned and then document ideas on how to take the information and use it later? If you answered yes to either of these questions, this "Training from the BACK of the Room" Practitioner Class is for you!
Based on the best-selling books by Sharon Bowman, the curriculum for this course will lead you through 6 Learning Principles that have their roots in cognitive neuroscience. These Learning Principles will help you engage your audience and help them retain what you've taught them. You will experience dozens of tools that will allow you to apply these learning principles in your own classroom and you will leave with an extremely full "tool bag" of tools that you can take back and start applying immediately!
In this hands-on course, you'll explore the 4C's map, which is based on Accelerated Learning, and learn how to structure your curriculum to make the most of the limited time you have with your students. You will use the knowledge you've gained to create a 4C's map on a topic that you currently teach. Teachers and trainers that fall anywhere on the spectrum from new to experienced will walk away with ideas they can implement right away.
