Exploring a Sociomaterial Perspective on Technology in Virtual Human Resource Development

Mary Helen Fagan    

Abstract: The Problem Technology is creating immersive digital ecosystems that will radically transform the way humans communicate, collaborate, and create. Virtual human resource development (VHRD) is an example of this phenomenon in the field of HRD. With the emergence of VHRD, HRD scholars need to develop more robust conceptualizations of technology, and HRD practitioners need to play a larger role in technology development. Enhanced theoretical perspectives on technology are needed to support these endeavors.

The Solution A sociomaterial perspective on technology, which is being used for the study and development of phenomena such as virtual worlds in other disciplines, can help HRD practitioners and scholars develop a more robust understanding of VHRD and participate more effectively in technology development.

The Stakeholders HRD practitioners and scholars can use a sociomaterial perspective on technology to facilitate their engagement in VHRD development and scholarship.
