Second Life and L2 acquisition

I have invited our colleague Doug Canfield, from the University of Tennesee-Knoxville, to come on board and blog a bit here in LLU-land about what he knows about using Second Life for language learning. I have blogged about it here, but Doug presented a compelling keynote at the IALLT conference at Tufts last summer on the topic, will soon be publishing an article based on that keynote, and has continued to do research in the area of effective uses of this tool for teaching.

Welcome Doug…tell us more!

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!

    Just kidding – welcome to LLU, Doug! It’s great to have you. 😀
