Is Financial Reward Overriding Good Pedagogical Practices?

People and Place
Volume 18 Issue 2 (2010)

Abstract: Enrolments by international students in Australian universities have boomed over recent years, especially in postgraduate courses. In many cases these students struggle to meet the standard that their teachers expect. This is often because of poor English combined with a limited understanding of the teachers' cultural expectations. Rather than lamenting their students' inadequacies, the present authors embedded an academic skills segment in one of the introductory units that they teach in a postgraduate MBA program. This resulted in a statistically significant reduction in plagiarism among the students who participated in the unit.
