Resumo

The beginning of a teacher's career is a challenging period for the development of their educational practices, being essential for their professional development. This study aims to understand the role of Project-based learning in the professional development of elementary school teachers at the beginning of their careers. The qualitative analysis carried out is based on the data collected through semi-structured interviews to eight beginning teachers. Results show that beginning teachers show some difficulties in integrating these methods in their teaching practices, which could be lightened through a more consistent collaboration between initial teacher education institutions and schools, in order to facilitate their career integration and professional development.
