Abstract

In the contemporary Higher Education context, the most obvious advantage of large classes is economic. There is an economy of scale relative to the efficient use of the time and skill of academics as well as the cost of the associated infrastructure.

This paper documents the experiences of the authors in the delivery of a core communication service course to some 3,000 students annually at the University of Southern Queensland. The authors consider that effective teaching and learning can occur within this environment - that with dedication and commitment, teaching large numbers offers a unique and rewarding experience.
