Whether played by teens, adults or in corporate team-building programs, an Escape Room is a perfect way to test your wits in a race against time. Throughout the world the fascinating world of Escape Rooms is popular and growing! According to S. Nicholson’s study on escape rooms, they involve teamwork, communication, and delegation as well as critical thinking, attention to detail, and lateral thinking. 

Escape rooms continue to be a popular pastime. Physical escape rooms have expanded to include tabletop games and online experiences. In addition to being a fun activity, digital escape rooms can also be used as effective training tools. A digital escape room engages the learner by using game mechanics such as story, Easter eggs, puzzle solving and competition and provides a unique platform for learning.

Join us for play with our friends and colleagues Monica Cornetti of Sententia Gamification and Gamemaster of GamiCon and Sharon Goza of Game2Learn and winner of the TechLearn and GamiCon Award for Outstanding Use of Narrative in the Gamification of Learning (2019). 

Discover how you can:
  • Explore the delightful world of escape rooms
  • Build an escape room on a budget without paying for expensive licenses or artist fees
  • Address ways to make the escape room accessible for people with disabilities

By the end of this session, you too will be “Making Your Escape” PLUS you'll receive instructions and a template for creating your own Escape Room in PowerPoint!
