Immersive Learning 

What is Immersive Learning?

Immersive learning is the creation of a complete environment where people can interact and perform tasks as they would in real life. And these engaging environments captivate learners. Above all, they simulate the real world where there are multiple dynamics going on at the same time.

Immersive learning is designed for the “gray areas” of leadership. And here, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to dealing with people. But the biggest benefit is that these experiences allow people to fail safely. DDI offers several immersive learning experiences, including VR and simulated environments for individuals and groups.

Virtual Reality

VR is the most common way to approach immersive learning. It places leaders in a virtual world where their bodies and minds react as though it’s a real experience. 

Many industries use VR because it allows people to practice complex tasks without risk. But the next frontier is in soft skills because of its emotional impact. And that’s where DDI comes in: we’re pioneers on the soft skills front.

Individual Simulations

Individual simulations immerse people in an environment that can’t be done online or through in-person role playing. They ask people to complete tasks common to what a leader would do on an average day: prioritize, coach, and motivate. 

These experiences are also a great way to compare what people know intellectually with how they act on the job. In the end, you’ll leave with incredible predictive data about how people perform and results that help you focus development.

Group Experiences  

Model group experiences on a business simulation and give your people the understanding of how their own role is at play with the larger team. Your group will also see how team dynamics can lead to very different outcomes for the business. Likewise, these experiences create focus around a clear purpose and show how joint decisions have real business implications.
