This article presents a study focused on key learning experiences of adults living in conditions of social exclusion. The objective was to identify the meanings that 63 Chileans, students at a popular training institute, have about the learning experiences that have marked them the most. Methodologically, through the qualitative analysis of vignettes collected through written questionnaires, we investigated elements of their sense of recognition as learners. The results indicate that most of the key learning experiences relate to searching for recognition themes. These identified experiences allow the subject to connect with different learning motives. In our discussion of findings, we integrate concepts such as recognition, alterity, and subjectivity, aiming to contribute to the processes of reflexivity required in all qualitative research.
