Increasing Learner Retention through the Use of Mnemonics

Mnemonics have been a useful learning tool since the time of ancient Greeks. Mnemonics have been particularly helpful in the practice of medicine where prompt recall by physicians is needed to diagnose and treat illnesses. Mnemonics are useful not only in medicine, but in a whole host of disciplines. This session will explore the history of mnemonics, the learning theory behind them, and the proper construction of mnemonics (Hint: Scrabble tiles are helpful).
