Using Virtual Reality To Make Diversity Training More Effective

Interesting article on using VR to make Diversity Training more effective by Rebekah Bastian, here is an excerpt from the interview with Myra LalDin:

Bastian: How do you think VR helps people absorb DEI concepts differently than traditional learning methods?

LalDin: People are starting to experience diversity fatigue, and DEI training can often times feel punitive. Perspectives does not impart rules or tell participants what not to do; they construct their own learning by experiencing situations from someone else’s vantage point. Between these interactive experiences and facilitated discussions, teams practice how to identify bias and how to address it. Being able to live and feel Sue’s experience in the VR world provides behavioral and cognitive learning that is more effective in retention and that increases pro-social behaviors more than both classroom and eLearning. The shared, participatory experience in sessions also helps improve team dynamics.
