Student Satisfaction with Cooperative Learning in an Accounting Curriculum
Farrell, Brian J.; Farrell, Helen M.
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v5 n2 Article 4 p39-54 2008
Cooperative learning has been introduced into International Accounting, a second year subject at a major Australian university. The purpose was to provide students with a satisfying experience of learning within a social context and to develop their interpersonal, professional and written communication skills. The main data were collected during the Spring Semester 2005. In the penultimate lecture, a questionnaire was distributed to each of the students present. Findings suggest that despite some difficulties, the majority of students reported that cooperative learning created supportive team experiences that assisted them to develop discussion skills and better engage with the content of International Accounting.
