Project title

Teacher training and identity construction


The project seeks to study the process of identity construction of trainers, in its biographical and relational dimension. The studies cover both initial training and continuing training.

Theoretical foundations

The studies are based on the theories of professional identity and socialization and on the theory of social representations., from the perspective of social psychology.


Fieldwork focuses on students preparing for teaching (Initial formation) and/or teachers in continuing education. Research uses quantitative and qualitative approaches, with emphasis on the use of
questionnaires and scales for quantitative assessments (treated by statistical techniques), and journaling techniques, life stories and interviews for qualitative data collection (with treatment through content analysis). the treatment of
data uses computational tools (ALCESTE, IRaMuTeQ, SPHINX, SPSS).
