Misconceptions about the Learning Approaches, Motivation, and Study Practices of Asian Students.
Kember, David
Higher Education, v40 n1 p99-121 Jul 2000
Review of evidence from over 90 action research projects finds the common assertion that Asian students prefer passive learning and resist teaching innovations is not correct. Argues that the motivation displayed by Asian students is not an extrinsic form of motivation, which depresses intrinsic motivation, and that the high levels of achievement motivation of these students has a collective nature.
