In this contribution we argue for instructed reflection and practice of Social Presence (Kehrwald, 2008, 2010) and Participatory Literacy skills (Giger 2006, Pegrum 2009) in education programs preparing language teachers for technology-mediated contexts. We introduce the aforementioned concepts and their interrelationship as well as their connection with multimodal competence (Kress 2003) and symbolic competence (Kramsch 2006). We propose that teachers need to be able to model these skills and competences for learners in online environments as they not only make up their own and their students’ semiotic budget but are also – we hypothesise – the pre-condition for successful computer-supported collaborative learning (CSLC). We further hold that this applies in particular to technology-mediated language learning, due to the challenges arising from the dual mediation effect of a. the technology and b. the foreign language. Our insights stem from the design and delivery of a training module for pre- and in-service language teacher trainees in an EFL course in the Foreign Language Education Department (FLED) at Boğaziçi University: Tutoring with Web 2.0 tools – Designing for Social Presence.
