Drawing on an interaction analysis of video recorded data from a maritime navigation course, this presentation aims to explore potential dilemmas between sustaining authenticity through role-play in simulations and the needs for in-scenario corrections. Two episodes from the empirical data is presented, suggesting that the instructors’ corrections during role-play might not be heard as corrections by the students. Moreover, the presentation show how the instructors’ practice of leaving the role-play in order to clarify corrections shifts the focus of the activity: from the professional realm to the educational context. Our conclusion is that these movements are important for simulation training to fulfil its pedagogical potential.
