Habitus and Teacher Education in Higher Education: Reflections of a Supervisor and a Master Student during Teaching Internship

Barbara Cortat Simoneli, Kyria Rebeca Finardi


The paper reflects on the role of the Teaching Internship in the teacher education program based on the perceptions of a professor and a teacher assistant working together in the undergraduate Supervised Internship course during remote emergency teaching (ERT). The professor involved worked in the discipline as principal teacher/master advisor/supervisor of the teaching internship and the other teacher worked as assistant professor/master student/intern in teaching. Using autoethnography techniques with records made by the professor and the teacher involved in the discipline in their reflection diaries, excerpts from their experience were chosen to illustrate the discussion/reflection on the role of the Teaching Internship in teacher education. Bourdieu’s concept of habitus is used in the interpretative analysis, concluding that the experiences lived by the two teachers are permeated and built through the habitus that shaped the interpretation and education of the teachers involved.
