The COVID-19 pandemic emergency brought human vulnerability to the proscenium revealing the uncertainty associated with existence. It appears as a symptom of a deeper crisis of modern society, whose paradigms need to be questioned. Could this be an opportunity, though? The qualitative study presented here aimed to investigate the emotions experienced and the responses developed by the education professionals during the first lockdown. It explored the areas related to motivation, fears, and the ideas prompted by the change, with a focus on the conditions able to foster “creative solutions”. Teamwork and the presence of training programs appear to be crucial elements.
