Avanscoperta Retreat #3 – Cross-Company Collaborations
Retreats always comes in threes! 🙂
And that’s with this spirit that we organised our Retreat #3 once again in the city of Bologna. Bologna, again?! Well, we did try to escape to somewhere more exotic this time around (closer to the water for example… ) but eventually the capital of Emilia-Romagna, foodies’ paradise and very well connected with the rest of mainland Italy, remains the city of choice for our annual Retreat.
Not to mention its proximity with Avanscoperta’s HQ in nearby Faenza, where everything began just over 10 years ago.

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!

Avanscoperta Retreat #2 – Open Space
Once you pop, you cannot stop… And so that’s how we ended up organising Avanscoperta’s second Retreat in Bologna in January 2019!
We had so much fun the previous year, and the value for us, Avanscoperta, and for our trainers and partners alike, it has been so big that we simply couldn’t let other year pass without gather to learn new stuff, find out and explore new ideas… you know how it works, right? 🙂

A Training for Trainers: Training from the Back of the Room
What happens when you gather (almost) all of your trainers in a room for two days and give them the tools to create from scratch or reshape their workshops and courses thanks to an effective “training for trainers” format (Sharon Bowman’s “Training from the Back of the Room”)?
(Now available as a public workshop: get your tickets for the second edition of Training from the BACK of the Room, with Teri Frith, Bologna, 8-9 June 2020).
