Preferred learning methods: A comparison between international and domestic accounting students

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paper presented at Conference (not in Proceedings)

Abstract

This study provides a comparison between the preferred learning modes (traditional, interactive, group case-based lectures) of international and domestic students undertaking a new undergraduate accounting topic at an Australian university. The Likert-scale survey questionnaire is used to determine the differences and similarities between the two groups. When these results are analysed using the Hofstede model of societal cultural dimensions, they indicate significant differences between the two groups of students with regard to their preferences for formal versus interactive and group case-based lectures. The paper provides a discussion of the implications of these findings for teaching methods, assessment, and curriculum.
