Immersive learning environments require effective facilitators to enable student learning. In current literature on immersive learning, there is limited insight on the role that teacher behaviors have on fostering learning. Despite this, there is considerable literature on the role of the teacher as a leader in contemporary classrooms. This chapter focuses on the authentic leader behaviors in teachers and how this may affect student success. While student learning can be viewed from many perspectives, this chapter focuses on three perspectives: affective, cognitive, and pedagogical. The literature enables the establishment of the belief that teachers who embody authentic leader behaviors are likely to be more successful in facilitating student learning within an immersive learning environment. Implications and future research opportunities are also highlighted as a result of the theory generation in this chapter.
