Abstract Student perceptions of the educational experiences that are provided to them at tertiary institutions do not necessarily match the perceptions of the academics who provide these educational experiences. Mismatches between student perceptions and academic perceptions can adversely affect student learning as well as lead to mutually frustrating encounters between students and academics. This paper presents a selection of nine true teaching tales. Each of the tales recounts an experience which allowed the author to perceive a situation from the student point of view. The paper then discusses the importance of student perceptions in computing courses.
