Since March 2020, the landscape of language and communication
teaching has seemingly permanently shifted. Pre-Covid, our teaching
was still predominantly classroom-based. The recurring lockdowns
meant that teachers expanded and explored their teaching in a digital
environment to encompass distance, hybrid and multimodal methods
of delivery to students. Whilst all these methods have existed for
some time, the pandemic forced every teacher to approach them
head-on. With this change the question has arisen whether the
learning outcomes and objectives we have been using earlier are still
relevant to students or if we need new outcomes and objectives for
the digital age.
