Students hold different views on what is important and what is indispensable for their individual needs. This seminar will compare perspectives of students in Hong Kong and Singapore. The data set was generated by the Learner’s Perspective Study. Ten consecutive lessons were recorded for each participant teacher, and were followed by two post-lesson student interviews for each lesson. With video-stimulated recall, the students commented on what they considered important in the lessons.
