A Cross-Cultural Investigation of Students' Perceptions of the Effectiveness of Pedagogical Tools: The Middle East, the United Kingdom, and the United States

Journal of Studies in International Education, v14 n3 p289-306 Jul 2010
Despite the growing number of international education programmes, students' response to various pedagogical tools used in these programmes has rarely been examined. Accordingly, business academics teaching on such programmes may not be sure as to which pedagogical tools to use. This study empirically investigates how various teaching tools affect undergraduate students' perception of the learning process. A self-administered survey was used to gather data from 461 undergraduate students in the Middle East, the United Kingdom and the United States. Findings demonstrate that the students from each region have a different opinion with regard to the impact of various teaching tools on their learning outcomes. The implications of this for business educators are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 1 note.)
