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 has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure 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 watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.

    Hmmm. As long as I don’t have to hear Rocky Top

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