HOBOLD, Márcia  e  ANDRE, Marli Eliza Dalmazo Afonso de. Processos de constituição identitária dos chefes de departamento dos cursos de licenciatura. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2008, vol.08, n.23, pp.137-151. ISSN 1981-416X.

The main objective of this paper is to analyze the processes of identity constitution of teacher education department heads of a private university in the South of the country. Data collection procedures include institutional document analysis, interviews with all nine department heads, with university deans and with teacher educators. As far as this paper is concerned only interviews data with the department heads will be discussed. It was found that acting as a department head requires some competences that go beyond those required to be a teacher. Therefore, unwontedly, there is a reality shock in face of the many diverse tasks they have to perform, such as budget monitoring, strategic and marketing planning and students’ registration control. Some of those tasks are new and characteristic of private educational institutions, aiming at reinforcing outcomes and reducing costs, signs of globalized times. It is our understanding that the work that teachers perform while acting as department heads is not untied from the social, economic and political context. The research theoretical framework is based on writings of André (2006), Dubar (2005), Imbernón (2004) and Dias da Silva (2005). What the department heads report about their daily work and their life history reveal difficulties, pleasures, and anxiety to perform their tasks and made it possibly to understand family, schooling and job influences in their professional identity constitution processes.
