M1A Workshop

Educating Engineering Escape Rooms

Monday 7 December  |  09:00 – 10:30

OVERVIEW OF WORKSHOP

This workshop will introduce participants to the relatively new world of educational escape rooms. Educational escape rooms are fun, game-based learning activities which encourage strong teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving. Participants will get firsthand experience to participate in educational escape rooms and brainstorm their practical implementation within the classroom. These activities have been shown to be highly engaging and are a clear example of active learning. They also rate as extremely popular activities in the classroom. Rather than having a whole series of small rooms, these educational escape rooms are table-top based and use a portable electronic escape room decoder box.
