  • 7. Our Interest in VHRD
    Interest in immersive, more engaging learning for students
    Work with military and allied health in virtual simulations
    Previous research in instructional design, online learning, virtual worlds, and evaluation
    Used Second Life for virtual office hours starting 2007
    Used Active Worlds in course projects in 2008
    2008, 2009, 2010 AHRD presentation about using Virtual Worlds in HRD
    UNC-TLT presentations in Second Life
    Dissertation research
  • 8. About the Article
    Need: no consensus on what or how to evaluate learning in Virtual Worlds
    Purpose: address methods and assessment techniques for measuring learning outcomes in VWs
    Qualitative case study investigating evaluation practices in VWs & their relevance to VHRD, & literature review on evaluation and virtual worlds
  • 9. Significance to VHRD
    Capturing learning that measures performance
    Evaluating in context: performance based learning, authentic assessment, social learning, group learning artifacts, peer evaluation
    Developing formalized evaluation plans & strategies for VHRD
    Reducing barriers for HRD practitioners
