Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The study focuses on the discourse of six trainees to attend a professional master's degree in teaching and aims to understand how these future teachers perceive their evolution as people and as professionals. From the Target Language Observation Scheme(TALOS) categories, the study analyses the content of the reflections produced on three observed classes and reveals the self-portrait of the professional practice that transpires in them. In the analysis of the data on the reflection, we highlight, firstly, strengths and aspects to improve evidenced at each moment of reflection, dissecting them according to eight TALOS categories.
