Abstract: A major theme of educational research has focused on cultural practices that are learned within formal and informal settings. Many innovative approaches to classroom design come with the intention that practices of the people who are experts in a domain are enculturated by classroom students. This idea, known as authenticity, has been carefully conceptualized in a large variation of educational settings. Cognizant of the inherent gap between conceptualizations and their implementation, we used a constant-comparative method to analyze different variations of authentic learning designs. With the aim of bridging this research-practice gap, our analysis resulted in a model of cultural interaction within learning environments based on different configurations of participants and settings. The conceptual contribution of our research is a refined framework of authenticity that foregrounds the role of human interaction in cultural mediation. Practically, our model contributes new insights into the design of authentic learning environments.
