Happy Learning – Feedback session on the workshop “Design your own Escape Game”

Thursday December 20 – 1pm-2pm – Learning Lab (Audencia Atlantic Campus)

If pleasure and well-being are supposed to bring more efficiency at work, this is the same for learning. Positive emotions have a real impact on students’ motivation, memory and commitment. The “Escape Game” experience is an adventure game involving a number of puzzles to be sorted in a limited time. As it enhances curiosity, collaboration and emotional skills for participants, why not use this format for educational purpose?

The Alliance  Centrale-Audencia-Ensa week was a great opportunity to test this format with students coming from different educational backgrounds. The Audencia Learning Hub team launched a challenge for students to build an Escape Game in two days. There was a double objective to this human adventure : teach escape game design and methodologies to the student designers, and deliver a real escape game to potential future participants. The Escape Game had to focus on how  soft skills could be used to sort out puzzles, and also discover the main soft skills.

Erika LOGEAIS, Aline POLIPOWSKI and Eliane VACHERET will provide their feedback on this first experience in Audencia and explain how this format offers real opportunities for pedagogical innovation.
