Escapegame - How to motivate students with gamebased learning elements

MicroLab

Introduction

Do you also feel challenged to encourage your students through game-based learning? Are you up for a game to discover how to (re)gain student motivation through game-based learning? Then sign up for this MicroLab! In a playful way you will learn practical strategies to use game-based learning in your profession, and why these strategies are motivating for students. The workshop is meant to inspire you to apply game-based learning in your own teaching.

The MicroLab consists of the escapegame and a subsequent session in which you elaborate on the insights from the game and apply them to your own teaching. The escapegame is fully developed within the learning platform Canvas and will therefore be played digitally. However, the entire MicroLab will take place on campus Woudestein, so that we can adequately guide the groups.

No specific prior knowledge is required. The MicroLab is also interesting for more experienced teachers who want to learn more about motivating students via game-based learning.

The escaperoom will be played in pairs or groups of two or three. It is possible to sign up for an escaperoom session with a colleague. Both must sign up individually.
