How the brain learns and how to make your training activities more brain-friendly

An interview with Teri Frith

Did you know that a lot of the things we now know about “how the brain actually learns” have only emerged in the last 15 years or so?

The neuroscience principles behind learning are reflected in a lots of good approaches of brain-friendly teaching available today.
One of them is the “Training from the BACK of the room” training. A mind-blowing technique aimed at trainers, teachers, and anyone who has to “pass knowledge to others”.

When we had to organise our first-ever company Retreat, back in January 2018, the good old Dan North recommended we got in touch with Teri Frith, a certified “Training from the BACK of the room” trainer. So our Retreat was a 2-day “Training from the BACK of the room” training for our trainers and experts led by Teri.

Now you have a chance to read our interview with Teri and find out how to make your training activities more “brain-friendly”. Our community really liked it… your turn now!

muCon: The Conference on Microservices, DDD & Software Architecture

Once upon a time there were two of the most successful conferences organised by Skills Matter. They were called DDD eXchange and muCon.
These two events have now merged into a bigger and better one: muCon – The Conference on Microservices, DDD & Software Architecture, a 3-day conference which aims at serving both the Domain-Driven Design and Microservices communities.
Both communities are alive and well all over the world, as the very varied and international crowd at the BDC in London could testify! 🙂

An interview with Jacopo Nardiello

Avanscoperta: Hi Jacopo! One of the latest addition to our team of trainers and experts. A very warm welcome from all of us! 🙂

Avanscoperta: Esperto di UX/Design, docente universitario, fondatore di un’azienda di Design, antropologo (o meglio, Hackntropologo!) e, last but not least, trainer Avanscoperta… quale job title descrive meglio ciò che fai?

Raffaele: Quando sento gli altri riferirsi a me con i job title quasi non mi riconosco. Io mi considero un artigiano curioso. Continua la lettura di Cosa si intende con User Research, User Experience e User Interface Design?
