A narrative characterizes the process of research that consists in making memorials, life stories, autobiograghies, diaries, in other words writings about oneself, in histories that are rich in meaning and in particularly subjective aspects appear (Abrahão, 2003). This workshop aims to use autobiography and storytelling to make sense of the personal experiences of academics in the context of higher education relating pedagogical practices during the Covid 19 pandemic. Three academics will facilicate aspects (techniques) in autobiography and storytelling in order to capture their experiences in changing pedagogies in higher education and what this means for post covid 19 times. The focus of discussion will be on the academics´ experiences with online training to deliver online teaching, on an online delivering mode. Also, with the notion that ´no student will be left behind´ and the subsequent difficulties relating to this endeavour. Through these methodologies we anticipate to capture meanings of social life that are not easily discovered. The correlation between time and narrative causes researchers to inquire about the origin of a historical narration of a historical consciousness, in which the present, the past and the expected future intersects (Ricoeur, 1995).
