We are happy to announce the publication of a NEW ISSUE of the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research (JVWR) – the second and concluding part of the special issue on Pedagogy.

Volume 12, Number 1 (2019):

Pedagogy – Taking Stock and Looking Forward (Part 2)

Issue Editors:
Kenneth Y. T. Lim, National Institute of Education, Singapore
Cátia Ferreira, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Portugal

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of a landmark issue of the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research, which was themed on ‘Pedagogy,’ an issue that was the fruition of a vision of the late Dr. Leslie Jarmon, who was a pioneer academic in the use of virtual worlds and immersive environments for learning.

In this second and concluding part of the two-part special issue – four more academic papers which together paint a colorful canvas on just how far we have come, from those early tentative steps during which we explored the nexus between immersive environments and learning a decade ago.
