Abstract [en]

Current debate in education suggests the need to promote learning contexts where learners can become increasingly active in the co-construction of knowledge within their learning community. Ironically, Second Life’s potential to simulate real-life face-to-face learning brings to the forefront traditional pedagogic concerns such as teacher/learner roles, methodology, syllabus and materials design and the validity of assessment procedures.

The challenge for educators is thus to design tasks and promote teacher-learner interaction that encourage learner engagement, participation, autonomy and creativity within the practical constraints of SL and the administrative demands of the institutions we operate in.

Based on research and experiences taken primarily from the domain of language learning, we argue that there are several issues related to task design and teacher practice that educators need to be aware of when designing/coordinating learning activities in SL.
