I think that generally, irreversible expansion occurs in real life situations, so we assume temp is changing, unless it is a phase change (which are isothermal). Reversible expansion calculations are hypothetical maximums and temp is always kept constant, which we can see in the equation w=-nrTln(v2/v1) where T does not have a delta in front of it.
