Abstract

Describes an introductory undergraduate astronomy course in which the large-lecture format was moved to one in which students were immersed in a technologically-rich, inquiry-based, participatory learning environment. Finds that virtual reality can be used effectively in regular undergraduate university courses as a tool through which students can develop rich understandings of various astronomical phenomena. (Contains 70 references.) (Author/WRM)
