Virtual Worlds: New Directions for HRD Research and Practice
Chapman, Diane D.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
Virtual environments, once used strictly for gaming and military training, have developed into spaces for community building and collaboration rather than competition. This literature review explores virtual worlds and underlying theories of interest to Human Resource Development (HRD). Findings suggest application opportunities for HRD in five areas: HRD education, training, community building, career development, and research. Usage implications and potential applications are suggested for HRD practitioners and scholars who wish to explore these phenomena. (Contains 1 table.)
