(2018) found that active learning techniques work for large lectures, particularly for international students. This is a significant finding, as it has been assumed by some that international students just want to passively be told what to learn. The authors also suggest better results could be obtained with small group activities, where international students feel more comfortable. The research was conducted with 413 accounting students at an Australian university.
