Download PDFTraining from the Back of the Room (TBR), by Sharon Bowman, is a set of resources, techniques, and principles based on leveraging the way our brains work to design a training event that has maximum learning impact.
In recent years, the Agile Community has made TBR an essential reference for all training and coaching professionals who want to teach courses that really achieve their goal; to help students learn.
However, TBR training is not just oriented toward training instructors, but also to speakers, Scrum Masters, agile coaches, and in general anyone who speaks in public and wants to better convey their message by getting the audience involved. Our parent company, Netmind, has been an official TBR trainer since April 2017.
