Encounter with visual and/or textual diaries: a thought-provoking space in the educational experience

Abstract This paper, originated from a doctoral research, aims to discuss how the encounter with classroom diaries happens in an educational experience, offering an overview of them, with them, and beyond them. Thus, seeking to achieve these research’s objectives, the narrative perspective was chosen. This perspective is materialized in the problematization of the visual and textual diaries produced by the students of the Visual Arts degree at Federal University of Santa Maria and in the networks of affection which have or have not potentialized the thought about the teaching experience. Therefore, intending to meet the demands raised by the narratives produced in the diaries, the research proposes a dialogue with the concept of event. In this approximation of one’s own narratives to others’,, it was possible to draw new perspectives and to think teaching as a process in constant renovation and invention.
