[Abstract]: This paper is based on a research project with the main purpose of identifying and using students' preferences for developing more effective teaching methods for statistics and related fields. The findings have demonstrated that students, regardless of their geographical location and cultural background, have a preference for visual features in teaching materials. In other words, students would like to be involved in real-life problems. The latest interactive technologies such as the Classroom Performance System (CPS) were, for the first time at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), adopted by the author for teaching Business Forecasting. Positive feedback from the students who participated in a survey, have demonstrated that the system can be used as an effective teaching and learning environment in the classroom. A methodology for utilizing CPS in such a way that it incorporates students' learning preferences has been presented.
