This chapter provides a detailed presentation of a virtual escape room implemented in the teaching and learning of psychodiagnostics and displays the students and lecturers' first experiences with its use. The activity was offered to 500 students of a compulsory first-year course of an MSc in General Health Psychology program. Ninety-four students entered the escape room, and 39 students completed the activity. All students reported that they enjoyed the escape room, and half of them reported learning and extending their knowledge as the main reason for carrying out the activity. Importantly, the activity increased the students' self-confidence towards the diagnosis establishment. The lecturers described the activity as a useful tool for enhancing the teaching and learning process in an innovative, intuitive, and motivating way. Thus, this virtual escape room seems to be a feasible and useful tool for lecturers that look for ways to enrich their teaching practice and to achieve a deep learning of the diagnostic procedures for their students.
