New kinds of pedagogic methods tested in an escape game setting
A new kind of pedagogic innovation was piloted in the form of an escape room game, built in the basement of Haaga-Helia’s Pasila campus, in which students could try out their financial management skills. In the escape game, the players solved a number of tasks with the help of tips, clues and their reasoning skills. Codes to combination locks were deciphered through financial management calculations. In addition to calculation, competing the game required problem-solving skills, creativity and cooperation.
