Abstract

Most instructors are looking for ways to improve student engagement in higher education classrooms across the globe. With the influx of tablets and laptops as the tool for students in the 21st century, the question arises of how best to integrate technology into the design of a lecture and is there a difference when designing a lecture with technology across cultures? The purpose of this study was to investigate lecture software in the hospitality classroom. The study was located in Singapore and the U.S., with a total of 337 participants. The instrument, to collect the perceptions of the lecture software was the Student Engagement Survey (SES), which revealed that active learning was significant when using lecture software in both locations, and active learning leads to student engagement.
