During Welcome Week at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) teams of students all entered the CELT centre and - using their ingenuity and problem-solving skills – cracked the codes to escape within the hour. Nine teams of between two and seven students completed the challenges and were successful. Participants all completed four challenges to collect crystals which were converted into points. These challenges required students to make use of academic and digital skills which will be essential in their university life. These included fostering a growth mindset; active reading for a purpose; problem solving and merging documents. The Escape Room introduces members of the CELT team to new and returning students and highlights the wealth of academic support available to them. All students who gave feedback said they enjoyed the event and would visit CELT again, with one student stating that it was “a good way to meet new people”.
