Escape Rooms in Education Showcase

Earlier this month, FLIE colleagues were fortunate to be involved in Escape Rooms in Education Showcase 2.0, an event run by Heriot Watt’s Learning and Teaching Academy, now in its second year. A very packed day was dedicated to showcasing examples of the use of escape rooms in education. This consisted of live lightning talks, pre-recorded talks, workshops and live digital escape rooms all run over MS Teams.

The day offered a wealth of innovation and experience as colleagues discussed the pedagogical and practical aspects of running escape rooms; from simple solutions using OneNote to immersive rooms. If you’re interested in gamification and how you might use an escape room idea with your students, or even get them to create one themselves, check out their YouTube playlist of all the sessions from the day:

(And you might even spot a short film from FLIE on the escape room we trialled at our Fusion Learning Conference last year!)
