To help students understand the concept of national security and the Hong Kong National Security Law (NSL), we have developed a curriculum based on the framework of law-abiding leadership, with three hours of lecture and seven hours of study. In a previous study based on the evaluation data collected from teachers in Semester 1 of 2021/22 academic year, we found that teachers generally had positive perceptions of the curriculum and the lecture, as well as benefits to students. They also perceived that the teaching helped them in terms of personal as well as professional development. To replicate the findings, we invited the teachers providing NSL education in Semester 2 of 2021/22 academic year to respond to a questionnaire with open-ended questions. Results showed that teachers had positive views of NSL education, including teaching experience, student experience, and benefits to students. The teachers also felt that the teaching promoted their personal as well as professional development. The findings suggest that teachers have positive experiences about NSL education based on law-abiding leadership for university students, although there are some challenges to be resolved.
