The escape room experience could be fun and engaging, but it is not a complete experience without a proper debriefing session.
Traditional escape rooms don’t include this part as they’re designed for friends and families. Collaborative escape rooms, on the other hand, tie together game elements with reflective questions to consolidate the learnings.
After completing the mission, the group comes together and talks about what happened, how they felt, how they saw themselves and their group members, what they did well, how they could further improve, what went wrong, etc.
For example, a question would be “Discuss and find 3 things you learned from this experience as a team that can have an impact in your regular work.”
At this point, a game experience has turned into a learning experience.
