A historicity that allows the subject to be an actor of her own life, and from her experiences narrated, it is analyzed and a training path by which the subject under study obtained academic and life skills. All times and spaces in which the professor is exposed are interpreted to understand the whole process of training.

The experience of life, lifestyle, family background, socio-cultural context are inseparable part of the training processes.
