Playful Learning Inspiration from Board Games
At the Centre for Innovation, we don’t just write about playful learning, we also play a game every now and then. In this summer edition, we share some of our favourite games with you and explain which of their playful principles we like most.
Escape Room Examples in Education

They form captivating learning experiences that stimulate curiosity in learning. In this article, we interview three Dutch university innovators about their experiences with developing escape rooms and the experiences of their participants.
