Benek-Rivera, Joan; Mathews, Vinitia E.
Journal of Management Education, v28 n1 p104-118 2004
Nontraditional instructional methods facilitate active learning by students. The "Jeopardy" exercise outlined in this article is based on the popular television game show and is presented as an active learning technique designed to (a) motivate students to actively participate in class and assume more responsibility for learning, (b) provide an in-class opportunity for teamwork, (c) reinforce students' learning of course concepts previously taught, and (d) add variety to classes by providing a fun environment for instructor and students alike. This article suggests using "Jeopardy" to review for exams. It concludes with a discussion of the effectiveness of the "Jeopardy" technique.
