In this editorial, we introduce our second issue, centred around the theme of “Virtual, physical, or somewhere in between”. We outline some of the challenges that PGR teachers have faced over the past few years, as well as the increasing attention being paid to their innovative and important work. We explore the evolving nature of the journal and discuss what we would like to see in future issues.
