PUJOL-COLS, Lucas  and  LAZZARO-SALAZAR, Mariana. Career vocation of the academic staff at a public university in Argentina. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.34, pp.72-86.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 2007-2872.

This study analyzes the perceptions that a group of Argentine university staff have about the role of vocation in their careers, with the aim of offering reflections that help to enrich our understanding of the dimensions that make up this complex construct in the academic context. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 22 academics from an Argentine public university and a content analysis of their discourses was carried out from a critical perspective. The results of this research allowed us to identify a series of categories that help to operationalize empirically the concept of vocation for an academic career.

Keywords : vocation; discourses; teaching; professors; Argentina.
