It was a great pleasure to present today my research on “Simulation-Based Learning Environments: Practice-Based Teacher Education for TESOL Teacher Candidates” at the GLoCALL 2021 Conference. My presentation and research focused 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.
