Abstract

This paper documents two graduate students' reactions to and comments about their involvement in an Action Learning project conducted predominantly through their use of Active Worlds, a 3D immersive learning environment. Their comments suggest that when engaged in the Action Learning process or when working in a 3D immersive learning environment like Active Worlds, students experience a transformation in terms of how they view teaching and learning, and how they subsequently view themselves as teachers and learners.
