Training from the Back of the Room Virtual Edition (TBR-VE), 8 December | Online Event | Training from the Back of the Room Virtual Edition (TBR-VE)
Deliver Virtual trainings the "TBR-VE" way. New brain science based tools & techniques to design & deliver trainings for virtual audience.

About this Event

In this practical and interactive 5-modules Training from the BACK of the Room Virtual Edition class, you’ll explore the current “cognitive neuroscience” that explains how ALL humans learn.

You’ll discover 6 specific brain-science principles and a 4-step instructional design model that you can use in your own 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 TBR-VE Class, you will be able to:

1. APPLY 6 brain-science principles – based on cognitive science – every time you deliver virtual training, regardless of the complexity of the topic, size of 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 own topic and materials with the brain-based concepts and strategies from the class and DEMONSTRATE how to leverage the strengths of virtual learning environments for maximum long-term retention.

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. RECEIVE a “TBR-VE Certificate of Completion” that declares your competence as a TBR-VE Practitioner in good standing.

7. BECOME an active member of the TBR Practitioners Group on Slack, a global community of trainers, teachers, instructors, coaches, and learning facilitators who collaborate and share best practices in brain-based learning and instruction.

To attend the TBR-VE Class, you will need:

a) The book "Training from the BACK of the Room" in either digital or paperback format. The book is available for purchase on

b) A computer (desktop or laptop; the class is NOT designed for a digital tablet or cell phone).

c) Live-streaming camera capability.

d) Adequate sound system (test it with a friend – oftentimes a computer speaker/microphone can be tinny-sounding and you may need to purchase an economical, external speaker/microphone).

e) A basic familiarity with the software platforms that will be used to deliver the class: (list apps here). If these apps are new to you, please consider viewing one of the free introductory tutorials on YouTube: (include links here). Or set up your own free account for each app and "play" with its features until you get a sense of how it works.

f) Printing source to download/print the digital Participant Workbook (about 45 pages). You should have a printed version of the Participant Workbook because handwriting (not typing) is an important component of brain-based learning (a tablet with handwriting capability – not just typing – is adequate). FYI: The workbook pages are not sequential for a reason; therefore, using an analog copy will make it easier to flip back and forth between pages.

g) Miscellaneous analog materials: sticky notes, sharpies/markers, blank paper, pen/pencil.

To attend the TBR-VE Class and to receive a "TBR-VE Class Certificate of Completion" you must:

a) Have the mandatory materials ready to use (these are itemized in the list above).

b) Attend all five 2.5 hour modules (a total of 12.5 hours of class time spaced over 5 weeks) and be an active participant during the live-streaming class time. Your commitment includes arriving on time and setting aside the whole time to attend, without meeting/call interruptions.

c) 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.

(Think of the homework as a "flipped classroom" approach to learning in which many of the traditional "lecture-based" segments take place off-line and the practice segments take place online. These "priming" and "spaced practice" assignments are really important elements of brain-based learning. They are also important to your own success as a TBR-VE Class participant.)

d) 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 own understanding of brain-based instruction.

e) Fill out an evaluation survey at the end of the TBR-VE Class so that your class trainer/producer team can make the class even better for future participants. You are a valuable part of this iterative, continuous improvement process.

Anil Jaising:

I am an executive and a public speaker in a financial services organization. I have presented and trained executives and teams from an early stage in my career. My role is to change the mindsets of adult audiences that seek data-based research and experience-based knowledge and skills. I have been using Training from the Back of the Room since 2011 and became a certified trainer to share my "life-since changing" TBR experience and foster future trainers to have a high sense of awareness and empathy for their learners. I have been a reviewer and speaker at the Agile Conference and Global Scrum North American and European Gathering since 2017. In a TBR workshop, I bring this experience to co-create great training design and delivery for all attendees. I have delivered public/private training and workshops in several countries across the world. My Agile/Scrum and DevOps training uses effective TBR design and includes stunning visuals that engage the brain and have no PowerPoint slides. I continually help review world-renowned speakers with their proposals and workshop designs and I bring that knowledge and expertise to my learners. I am a third-degree blackbelt in Karate and teach kids martial arts using TBR techniques.
