Presentation title
Simulation-Based Learning Environments: Practice-Based Teacher Education for TESOL Teacher Candidates
Presentation abstract
Post-pandemic, teacher education programs across the globe are searching for alternative pathways addressing practicum and fieldwork completion for teacher candidates. Simulation-based learning (SBL) with emotionally intelligent student avatars no longer seems a futuristic endeavor. Organizations focusing on medicine, nursing education, aviation, corporate work safety training, and the military have used simulations for years, enabling trainees to make decisions based on best industry standards through practice in virtual environments. With the growing diverse population in US schools, it is essential for Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) teachers to practice incorporation of culturally responsive pedagogy and providing a safe environment for English Language Learners (ELLs). This presentation focuses on reviewing, contrasting, and framing two different virtual training environments for TESOL educators searching for additional opportunities to offer interactive field and practicum experiences: simSchool and Mursion. The presentation and paper will identify, illustrate, and interpret practice-based teacher education (PBTE) and SBL. PBTE illustrates high-level teaching practices, with a specific focus on situated context of use. A PBTE model in SBL can engage TESOL teacher candidates in task-based approaches and help candidates to solidify their knowledge of the distinctions between teaching approaches, methods and techniques.
