Let us Play to Learn! Escape Rooms for Engaging Learning Activities Online

In medical education, simulation is an effective tool for students to begin to understand what challenges they may face with their future patients, while also learning about working in team-based environments. Dr. Archana Mishra, a clinical associate professor and clerkship director who serves as associate program director for the internal medicine residency at the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, has developed innovative escape room simulation activities and games for her medical students and residents. She will share her experiences, provide an overview on developing such activities, and address how she aids students in creative thinking and problem solving through escape room simulations, games, collaborative learning, and other active learning strategies.

Presenter: Archana Mishra, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences

Facilitator: Amanda Ramia
