The Development of the Learning Study Approach in Classroom Research in Hong Kong
This paper describes the learning study approach, which has the potential to develop into a classroom research movement in Hong Kong. The author examines how important research projects in the last decade have contributed to the development of this approach in Hong Kong. She then considers the uniqueness, impact, and factors that have led to the success of the approach. The challenges to be resolved for its future development are also discussed. It is hoped that readers will gain insights into how classroom research is supported in Hong Kong, and how strong research teams with a global impact can be nurtured.
