Images and Social Representations of Students’ Identity and University Experience
The aim of this study, with 104 students from Brazil and France, is to understand what first-year undergraduates think about students’ identities and university experience. It reports on a multi-methodological research, based on the theory of social representations, combining verbal and visual forms of representations. The results show conventional and subjective ideas about being a student, objectified in images and words. The results can help the design of educational projects to help adapt to university life.
