The study uses mix-method in which questionnaire and interview are conducted at the class of qualitative research of the sixth semester consisting twenty students especially after the implementation of a lesson study project.

It is also found out that the appropriate teaching procedures of the panel discussion are as follows; (1) let the students recognize learning exposures naturally by themselves (like reading research journals); (2) ask them to share, present, and discuss in a small group (in a limited number of students) to practice having mutual interaction among friends; (3) if the individuals have equipped themselves with the clear ideas of the small group, let them share in a big panel discussion. Hence, the individual self-confidence is naturally formed by the frequency of interaction among friends by sharing, discussions, and presentations.
