IMMERSIVE LEARNING AND CORPORATE STAFF DEVELOPMENT
WHAT, HOW, WHEN, WHERE, WHY AND WHO?
This white paper explores the role of the latest developments in Immersive Learning practices and technologies in the context of current staff development strategies for corporate environments. It aims to define what Immersive Learning Environments (ILEs) are, how they can and are being used, when and where they can be deployed, why they are important today and who is developing and/or using them.
Immersion in a learning activity is fundamental to its effectiveness. There is a direct correlation between how immersed a learner is and their motivation to develop their skills and competences. Immersion is not necessarily dependent on technology but today, in any crowded place anywhere in the world, you will find human beings fixated with their mobile phones and tablets, oblivious to their surroundings, all of whom are inevitably learning and developing in some way. This phenomenon is symptomatic of the role that technology is playing in revolutionising human learning and development. It is therefore vital to understand how this explosive trend can be harnessed to support corporate learning and development strategies in the most cost effective way.
