The present paper aims to illustrate the reorganization of the second year course “Standards for museum education” of the two-year post-graduate course “Advanced Studies in Museum Education” promoted by the CDM (Museum Education Centre) – Dept. of Education at University Roma Tre, that was carried out during the Covid-19 pandemic, and to analyse the educational strategies adopted in terms of museum educators’ professional development to face the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown of Italian museums and universities. The results, taking into consideration the activities and digital tools proposed, show in university students the efficacy of the course reorganization, in terms of transverse and professional skills development, critical thinking and collaboration in particular. Moreover, the data analysis offers useful indications in terms of university online lectures, e-learning laboratory activities and practices, evaluation tools and methodologies aimed at promoting professional development of in-training museum educators in a university learning context.
