Training from the Back of the Room is an approach to designing and delivering learning experiences. Based on Sharon Bowman’s books “Training from the Back of the Room” and “Using Brain Science to Make Learning Stick”, this method leverages the science behind how the human brain learns.
When designing learning experiences, lessons are structured to address 4 Cs:
1. Connections: What does the learner already know about the topic?
2. Concepts: What does the learner need to know about it?
3. Concrete Practice: Can the learner do it or teach it to someone else?
4. Conclusions: How does the learner plan to use it?
