Escape the Classroom! Exploring Hello Drama’s English-language escape room workshops

Audience focus: Teachers of adolescent learners


You'll leave this session with an insight into the escape room style theatre workshops that Hello Drama’s British facilitators deliver in secondary schools across Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. You’ll experience the benefits of combining drama activities with an escape room concept to encourage even the shyest students to speak up. There are codes to crack, criminals to find and you never know, there may even be a saboteur amongst us! This will be an active workshop in which participants will take part in some of the challenges themselves – after all, why should the students have all the fun? Laughter is pretty much guaranteed…
