"Designing Leadership Training in 3D Virtual Worlds"
Designing instructional events for virtual worlds requires new competencies for even the most experienced instructional systems designers. The environments, the courses, and the interactions are limited only by one’s imagination. Practice your emergency response to a virtual bioterrorism in a NY city subway with key players from around the world. Teach a medical student how to stop a heart attack from inside a virtual heart/classroom. Do old instructional design strategies even apply? In this highly interactive game-board session, we will see if Robert Gagné’s classic Nine Events of Instruction apply to 3D virtual worlds.
