*CfP: Pedagogy - Taking Stock and Looking Forward*

*Abstract submission by August 20, with publication Q4-2018*

Call for Proposals -- Pedagogy in Virtual Worlds - Ten Year perspective; a
special issue on pedagogy and learning in immersive environments to be led
by *guest editor: *Dr. Kenneth Y T Lim, from Nanyang Technological
University, Singapore

Motivation and Scope
2019 marks the tenth anniversary of a landmark issue of the Journal of
Virtual Worlds Research, which was themed on ‘Pedagogy.’ Volume 2 Number 1
of the journal was the fruition of a vision of the late Leslie Jarmon. Dr
Jarmon was a pioneer academic in the use of virtual worlds and immersive
environments for learning, and the issue at the time (2009) – was the
cutting edge of academic thought on what the affordances of virtual worlds
are, and how they could be leveraged for learning.

Much has changed since the heady days of the late 2000s, yet many aspects
have proved enduring.

This issue aims to document both the present and emerging state-of-the-art,
covering the adoption, design, enaction, scaling and translation of
immersive and/or mixed-reality environments for learning, and in other
contexts of education.

Topics that would be of relevance to this issue include, but are not
limited to:

   - The use of virtual worlds and / or immersive environments for learning
   - Mixed-modality / mixed-reality learning environments
   - Augmented reality in contexts of education
   - Virtual reality in contexts of training and / or instruction
   - Emerging research / late-breaking research on such environments with
   respect to learning
   - Think-pieces on the future of virtual worlds / mixed-reality
   environments for learning
   - The scaling of such interventions and their translation in to
   different contexts of learning
