Sharon Bowman's Training From the Back of the Room brings games to teaching and training. This provides an immersive, hands-on learning experience. One of her key messages is "Do the thing to learn the thing." We have created an introductory class on the underlying principles of Agile. This class follows Sharon's 4C (Connection, Concept, Concrete Practice, and Close) map. We will present this class with a focus on the games that utilize Sharon Bowman's principles and reflect on how this class was constructed.
