Michael Hamaoka


A SPECIAL INVITATION for iLRN designers, practitioners, and researchers.

We are pleased to circulate announcement of a Special Issue on "Designing Extended Reality (XR) for Authentic Learning" in the Journal of Applied Instructional Design (JAID).

For this special issue, the editors are interested in presenting current research in applied instructional design methods for utilizing VR, AR, MR, and other immersive
technologies to foster authentic learning experiences. They invite articles that will provide readers with practical ideas, strategies, methods, and techniques on topics related to designing, implementing, and evaluating instruction using XR for authentic learning experiences. Furthermore, they seek contributions that provide evidence about the efficacy of XR technologies, including the challenges encountered during their application in authentic settings. The articles should inform the study and practice of immersive
learning in preschool, K-12, higher education, or work-based contexts. This special issue of JAID invites scholar-practitioner perspectives as a means of disseminating and developing new ideas in instructional design. They have a particular aim to share expertise, success stories, and lessons learned from failure.


This Special Issue will be published in July/August 2024.
