    Abstract

    This paper provides a description of the experience of, and reflection on, employing authentic learning and teaching activities to encourage participation and active learning in tutorial classes in a first-year accounting subject. The lack of student participation and engagement in tutorials is recognised as an issue by many academics. Student's interest in developing accounting knowledge is further dampened by a perceived lack of relevance between textbook theories and practice. Using an action research model, this paper therefore describes and analyses strategies for dealing with these problems and stimulating student interest in learning.
