This contribution arises from two teaching innovation projects (call for innovative teaching projects of the Complutense University of Madrid) that have been carried out in the academic years 2020-21 and 2021-22. The projects has been developed in the subjects Didactics for the attention to diversity, Didactics and Curricular Innovation and Educational Technology, which arise from two concerns: 1) To bring students closer to knowledge and work procedures in line with a conception of the professional role sensitive to human social needs, whose practical performance is guided by moral and ethical criteria. 2) To help students to problematize the conceptualization of diversity and inequality beyond a relativistic or ethnocentric vision. For these purposes, we explore the value of visual storytelling in helping prospective teachers construct an inclusive teaching identity that recognizes the ethical, political, and social implications of the profession. First, we review aspects that impact the processes of teacher identity construction (AlMahdi & Bukamal, 2019; Brown, et al, 2020; Hoffman-Kipp, 2008; Tardif & LeVasseur, 2018; Sachs, 2005). Next, and consistent with the studies reviewed, we delve into the relevance that narrative inquiry has for apprehending and analyzing identity as experiences that can be narrated (Huber et al., 2013; McKay, 2019; Herring & Hunter-Doniger; 2018; Mills & Unsworth, 2018). This will allow us, third, to identify the new contributions that visual narrative inquiry brings to this field of study, and to initial teacher education. Finally, we conclude with the exposition of the procedural principles and basic principles that guide the work we have been developing in different teacher education degrees.
