CASLT is conducting a research project to explore the enduring impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on second language (L2) teacher practice across the country. Language teachers: we want to know how the pandemic has affected you and your teaching practices.

  • What challenges did you encounter during the pandemic?
  • What support did you receive?
  • What new teaching practices did you adopt?

The project will explore these ideas and provide an opportunity for L2 teachers to connect. It will include:

  • A survey of CASLT’s membership
  • An online focus group event for L2 educators and researchers
  • Interventions by experts on remote L2 teaching
  • Breakout and facilitated roundtable discussions

The survey is open to teachers of all languages at all levels.
