During the 2019-20 academic year, an Escape Rooms activity was used as part of the Induction Week activities. Student feedback showed that this approach worked well. This session will explore how this approach can be used to induct students for the academic year 2020-21. At time of writing it is unclear whether induction will be conducted face to face, online or a mixture of the two. The induction materials and teaching interventions need to be more flexible than ever and ensure that students receive a good experience whether they are physically on campus or not. The session will encourage discussion and reflection upon current practice and how we use these experiences to enhance the student experience during 2020-21.
