Abeysekera, Indra
Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice, v8 n1 Article 3 2011
This study examines three instructional methods (traditional, interactive, and group case-based study), and student opinions on their preference for learning financial accounting in large classes at a metropolitan university in Sri Lanka. It analyses the results of a survey questionnaire of students, using quantitative techniques to determine the preferred instructional method. It analyses the written comments made by students in the survey questionnaire using thematic analysis to determine the reasons behind their preference. The findings reveal that the most preferred instructional method is interactive and the least is traditional. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
