Immersive Learning: Designing for Authentic Practice

Immersive Learning: Designing for Authentic Practice focuses on how to design immersive learning environments and how these design practices differ from traditional instructional design processes. Traditional instruction often amounts to providing information to the learners without the opportunity to use what they learn. Immersive learning creates practice opportunities for the learners, which leads to improved performance and true behavior change. Immersive learning doesn t have to be an expensive 3D virtual environment. In fact, it s not about technology at all it s about design. By following the design process laid out in this book, you ll create learning that drives real change and is fun for the learners.
