When combined with other teaching methods, trivia questions can be an effective tool for teaching workplace safety. Trivia questions help participants review materials and concepts. This approach encourages active participation, which engages learners and helps them retain information.
Games, small group work, debates and discussion are additional examples of active participation methods. These methods work because participants are more likely to retain information that allows them to engage the material and draw upon their own experiences.
Using a variety of techniques to appeal to different learning styles is also effective. Visual learners learn by seeing the material, while tactile learners learn by doing. Less common are auditory learners, who learn by hearing. Creating materials for different learning styles will help ensure that all participants will learn about workplace safety.
