IDIA Lab is working on a virtual multi-user escape room simulation for Ball State University’s College of Health.  

Escape rooms employ innovative learning strategies such as problem-based, immersive learning, role play, and game principles to improve teamwork, communication and leadership. Nationally, health profession curricula are beginning to explore the use of escape room experiences as innovative pedagogy. Escape rooms challenge individuals to collaboratively explore new content, work as a team to discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish interactive tasks in a limited amount of time. The virtual multi-user virtual escape room will support teaching teamwork and communications curricula for health profession students and contribute to improved health outcomes.

The project will launch in Fall 2022.
