By now, you’ve probably heard of the ever so popular “escape room” experience! But have you considered using it in training? Beth breaks down the how-to’s of designing and implementing an escape room for your training sessions.
In training, escape rooms can be used to review and summarize content while also promoting communication and collaboration between participants. You can design riddles and puzzles based on the course content learners will need to solve to successfully “escape” the room. Since the goal of the activity is to “escape,” the classroom will become the physical room where learners work together to free themselves. The course facilitator is considered the “game master”—only becoming involved or providing clues when necessary. Using an escape room activity in your next training session will make for an interactive and memorable experience for your learners. By adding this review technique into the design and delivery of your training, you’ll not only enhance retention for your learners, but also add some spice to your training department’s reputation.
