The spread of the Sars-CoV2 infection and the ensuing systemic crisis have generated a series of impacts that go well beyond the field of epidemiology and also affect the academic training of future planners in terms of both content and teaching methods. This article provides a critical reflection on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the teaching of planning, starting from the teaching experiences conducted by the author at the Master’s Degree Course in Urban and Environmental Planning at the University of Palermo. An opportunity to start a broader discussion not only on the skills required by planners in the aftermath of the pandemic crisis but more generally on how degree courses in Urban and Regional Planning are equipping themselves to provide students with the necessary skills to face the challenges posed by the post-pandemic.
