Its popularity  is contributed to the nature of the answer-and-question format, and also its long running TV host, Alex Trebek. Each night contestants are given several categories of answers that they must respond to in the form of a question. This practice of learning interesting trivia and then regurgitating this information to become the ultimate prize winner is a technique that can be easily incorporated in helping adult learners retain important facts about their jobs.

Using the Jeopardy game as a way of helping adult learners retain information is just as impactful as using acronymns, songs, rhymes, images, or phrases, which are also called mnemonics.

Mnemonics help adult learners remember large amounts or complex information. One of the keys to this powerful memory tool is the ability to engage and make the learner feel comfortable with the act of learning. Music makes us feel various emotions, which are often positive . Music can help us relax, and the use of rhyming and imagery can do the same. The use of Jeopardy in helping adult learners feel the same way is proven by the interest of the television show for not only scholars and trivia fans, but to average aptitudes. Millions of viewers tune in every night to this show and often watch syndicated versions of previous episodes.

Each time they are exposed to this information and practice along with the TV contestants, they are improving their memory of certain facts. Because Jeopardy offers a variety of categories and topics, viewers and contestants have an opportunity to gain a vast amount of information from all aspects of their lives.

This same concept was incorporated in the SpiralHealth onboarding program for new hires. As new employees, SpiralHealth adult learners will be introduced to a vast amount of information including, but not limited to other employees and their roles and responsibilities, company history and values, products and services, rules and regulations, and performance requirements. How can they possibly retain this information from an onboarding program or even on-the-job training, and user guides in the timeframe that is needed for them to become active participants in various job responsibilities?

Using Jeopardy as a final assessment of the information that the adult learners are exposed to during the onboarding program is one of many ways that our instructional designers employ. Many of the adult learners not only find this approach to be engaging and helpful, but it also encourages them to seek more information and empowers them to ask more questions.

As we culminate this blog series, we know that this is really just the beginning of the information needed to explore other methods to enhance sticky learning and keep our workfore continuously developing their skills and experience.

Do you have some suggestions of ways that we can employ in future trainings? What has worked for you as an instructor or learner in other courses?

Share thoughts by adding comments to this blog. We look forward to hearing from you.
