Speaker: Lindsey Putterman is the Sales Director at Trivie, Inc. Trivie is focussed on two key interconnected business issues. We help employees remember training, and we give companies unprecedented insight into their training effectiveness. In doing so, we help companies better engage their employees to learn and retain information better, making smarter companies that have higher revenue, more efficient training organizations, and superior employee satisfaction. Established by nearly 100 years of research, retrieval practice is a simple learning technique that is easy to implement, with lasting results. It means exactly what it is. Practicing retrieval of learning (or training) from your memory. Through this act of retrieval, or micro-tests, our memory is strengthened, and forgetting is less likely to occur. Retrieval practice is a proven and powerful strategy for improving training performance without more money, class, or training time.
Retrieval practice encourages flexible understanding, improving higher order thinking skills and transfer of knowledge so employees can do their job better. When adding retrieval practice to a training program, the practice should be spaced, interleaved, and varied. By re-introducing a concept based upon earlier training, but in a slightly different way, fortifies the ability to recall knowledge and put into action.
With Trivie, trivia games are spaced at certain intervals based upon topics and concepts that have been taught. The spacing is recommended at 3, 5, 10, 21 days post-training, and each quiz takes no more than 8 minutes. For more information, please visit their website http://trivie.com
