The aim of this paper is to present some initial findings from an investigation into strategies for improving class participation in tutorials and small lectures in the Information Technology (IT) context. The research used a qualitative approach and data collection was undertaken using student focus groups and semistructured interviews with academics in an Australian IT Faculty. The findings highlight various reasons why students do or don't participate. Also strategies which academics can utilise to encourage student participation in IT tutorials and small lectures were discovered. © 2006 Alan Sixsmith, Laurel Evelyn Dyson & Indrawati Nataatmadja.
