Online instruction and learning should be dynamic, engaging, and effective. The goal of this session is to share our knowledge and expertise so that participants can create innovative student-centered digital learning experiences. In this session, we will take you through the strategic process of creating a virtual escape room activity to address gaps in student comprehension and retention. We will lead participants through a virtual escape room, facilitate a discussion on the various ways instructors can create student-centered learning activities, and conclude by providing everyone with resources and a tool kit to Make-Your-Own Virtual Escape Room. Every interactive project we create is designed through the lens of accessibility, and many include alternative options to provide access for all. Each learning activity is designed with universal design for learning in mind and is rooted in our course values of diversity, equity, and access, with the ultimate goal of reaching everyone, teaching everyone.
