Training from the Back of the Room - Virtual Edition

Take your training skills to a more advanced level as you discover how the human brain really learns, which is very different from traditional assumptions about learning. Explore the most current “cognitive neuroscience” about effective instruction – how the brain takes in, stores, retrieves, and uses knowledge. Discover six powerful learning principles based on the best of neuroscience, then apply these principles every time you train, teach, or coach others.

Use neuroscience to take your virtual training to the next level!

Training in an online environment and facilitating online events is something we encounter and experience more and more. But delivering training in the online environment is not just copy-pasting an original physical training to an online tool. It is so much more than that. In this training, you'll learn how to create a learning environment where learners process the information that they need to know in a brain-friendly, effective way.

The Training From the Back of the Room is perfect if...

You are an online facilitator, trainer, or teacher and you want your students to learn in the best way possible. If you want to know how to maximize the learning, how to connect with participants and how to engage all learners in the training, how brain-based principles support the learning, and how to make the best use of all of this in a virtual environment.

Our Training From the Back of the Room Virtual Edition (TBR-VE) will give you new insights that you can use in your online events where it is key to involve and engage everybody.

Training From the Back of the Room, The Virtual Edition (TBR-VE)

In this practical and interactive live virtual class (LVC), you will explore recent “neuroscience” as it relates to human learning in virtual environments.

What will you learn during the TBR-VE?

In this live virtual class, you’ll explore the current “cognitive neuroscience” that explains how ALL humans learn. You’ll discover six specific neuroscience principles and a 4-step instructional design model that you can use in your virtual teaching and training. You’ll leave with dozens of new ideas, activities, resources, and a new “Gold Standard” for virtual instruction and learning.

After your active participation in the class, you will be able to:

  1. Apply 6 neuroscience principles based on current research every time you deliver virtual training, regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of the group, or level of learners.
  2. Use the 4Cs Map as a training design and delivery model for brain-based virtual instruction.
  3. Create virtual training sessions that combine your topic and materials with the brain-based concepts and strategies from the class and demonstrate how to leverage the strengths of virtual learning environments.
  4. Explain to colleagues your understanding of cognitive science as it applies to learning, training, and memory in both virtual and face-to-face environments.
  5. Choose from dozens of virtual brain-based learning activities for all topics.
  6. Become an active member of the TBR-VE Class Group and share your expertise about brain-based virtual instruction and learning.

Training Days:

The training is divided in 5 sessions of 2,5 hours and the upcoming courses have the following dates and times:
Training days June 2022: June 13, 15, 20, 22 and 27 from 15h - 17:30h CET.

Training days July/August 2022: July 21, 25, 28 August, 1 and 4 from 15h - 17:30h CET.

Training days October 2022: 4, 7, 11, 14 and 18 October from 15h - 17:30h CET.

TBR-VE Trainer

Evelien Roos is a Certified Trainer for Training From the Back of the Room and accredited by Sharon Bowman, the founder of Training From the Back of the Room ( She has been part of the design team for the TBR Virtual Edition and is heavily involved in creating and improving the training. Our trainer has a long history of teaching, going back for 20 years in teaching dance classes, and teaching for 10 years in the Agile domain.

TBR-VE Certification

Upon completion of the class and the assignments, you will receive a TBR-VE Class “Certificate of Completion” and will be invited to the TBR-VE Class Group membership on Slack. 

To receive a "TBR-VE Class Certificate of Completion" you must:

  •  Attend all five 2.5 hour modules (a total of 12.5 hours of class time spaced over 2 1/2 - 3 weeks) and be an active participant during the live-streaming class time.
  • Do the "Warm-Ups" and "Follow-Ups" (pre/post-work) for each module – a total of about 6 hours of "homework" – reading, viewing, writing, creating, responding. There will be about an hour of pre-work before the class begins, about an hour between each of the 5 modules, and about an hour of post-work.
  • Be an active member of the TBR-VE Class Slack community site for the duration of the class. You will be supporting and encouraging the other class members and deepening your understanding of brain-based instruction.

Yes, I want to join the TBR Virtual Edition

After registering for the TBR-VE training, you will receive a confirmation email with practical information. You will receive the book Training From the Back of the Room by Sharon Bowman. You will use this book during the Virtual Training. You will also receive the Participants Workbook where you can note down all your insights and collect all virtual tools you learn during the training.
