Immersive Learning

By  Koreen Pagano

Get Abstract Button

Numerous studies have shown the same results: Virtual practice is often as effective—or more so—as real-life practice. Why is this? Immediacy of feedback—corrective feedback at the time of error—plus the ability to control the training environments to ensure the most common or most difficult scenarios are experienced and navigated by learners. The most useful training allows learners to actually practice skills in a safe environment.

In immersive learning, you can control what experiences learners have, the feedback they receive, and the opportunities they have to see both short-term and long-term consequences. Imagine the possibilities that new technologies can bring for training design! Doctors, salespeople, managers, emergency first responders—all can benefit from technology-enabled training. But how do you do it? Immersive Learning walks you through the process of designing and building immersive learning environments using the framework of the familiar ADDIE model. In this book, you will learn how to:

  • Discover a framework for thinking in terms of immersive learning design.
  • Outline the process of designing for immersion.
  • See real examples of organizations that have applied these principles to solve learning and performance challenges.
