USING WORKSHOP BASED TUTORIALS IN DEVELOPING POSTGRADUATE OVERSEAS STUDENTS’ THINKING SKILLS IN FINANCIAL ECONOMETRICS

University of Western Sydney (AUSTRALIA)
Critical thinking is an important issue in higher education and the development of critical thinking skills is one of the primary aims of a postgraduate degree. The effectiveness of traditional teaching methods to encourage critical thinking has been questioned as lecturers searched for ways of presenting materials and engaging students. In recent times, workshop- based/cooperative tutorials have become more popular in promoting deeper learning. This paper attempts to present the framework used in teaching postgraduate overseas students “critical thinking skills” in financial econometrics. The lessons and findings of the study are not new and appear in various forms in other literature in education and in Economics. However, the use of workshop- based tutorials/cooperative tutorials in teaching these skills has been underestimated in the literature.
