Recent technological advances have opened new platforms for learning and teaching. By utilizing virtual spaces, more educational opportunities are created for students who cannot attend a physical classroom environment. Integrating an Awareness of Selfhood and Society into Virtual Learning is a pivotal reference source that discusses the latest scholarly perspectives on creating meaningful learning and sensory engagement in virtual learning spaces, and examines how selfhood is expressed in these environments. Highlighting emerging topics in education, such as gender considerations, leadership development, and situated learning, this book is ideally designed for professionals, practitioners, graduate students, and academics interested in the role of virtual reality in learning contexts.
