Skip the boring lecture

Escape rooms for nurse educators looking to create active classrooms

Are your students bored with lectures? Are you looking for ways to make your content more interactive?  Do you want to create an engaging, critically thinking activity but don't know where to start?

We help nurse educators create escape rooms to build active learning classrooms.

There are many ways to remove lectures from your class slowly - we just happen to think that escape rooms are the most fun!  And there are a few options to help you get started.

Lecture is tough.

And dare I say, boring.

But it doesn't have to be this way.  You can eliminate lectures.  You can slowly build your course into an interactive active learning classroom.  And we have the plan to get you there.  You will be leading a flipped classroom in no time, using new and refreshing ideas that will engage students immediately,

Powerpoint is considered the #1 contributing factor to boredom in college classrooms.  How much are you using?

You are ready to start your transition out of "sage on the stage" delivery and towards active learning. We are here to support you!

Idea Bank

A blog for active teaching strategies

Want to start slow?  We understand!

The IDEA BANK is where great ideas, specific to a NURSING active classroom, are kept.  I know you will find something valuable here to implement right away.  Remember, it is all about small steps.  You don't have to revamp your entire course today. Just take it one small section at a time.

Here is some technical language about why escape rooms work . . .

Cognitive Domain

Escape rooms can develop critical thinking connections to practice

They promote knowledge acquisition, explore complex theoretical concepts and contribute to the development of critical thinking.

Affective Domain

Escape rooms can help develop teamwork and problem solving

They build student confidence, increase their motivation to interact with the class material, and build an emotional connection to improve retention and comprehension drastically.

Behavioral Domain

Escape rooms can help with soft skills

They offer opportunities for collaborative learning, interaction and problem-solving with peers, and the development of soft skills - all useful skills for nurses to master.
