HKU Data Repository

File-1-Observation; File2-Interview; File-3-Documents

Reason: 1. The research data I have uploaded contains unpublished data. 2. The teachers agreed to participate in my study on the condition that their personally identifiable information should be carefully removed from any publications.Due to the fact that the multimedia materials contained in the uploaded data contain faces and real names, as well as school names, "File-1-Observation" should be permanently embargoed. 3. The data collected include privacy-sensitive information, such as teachers' talk about their past, how they perceive themselves, and how they view their colleagues and the workplace. To ensure the participants' privacy, "File-2-Interview", should be permanently embargoed. 4. Documents generated by teachers for research, such as their lesson designs, are their personal intellectual property, and the teachers have explicitly informed me that their consent is required to use them. There is a need to permanently embargo "File-3-Document" per the teachers' wishes.
