This study deployed a mixed-method approach to explore how Asian students enhanced their engagement when teaching and learning practices embedded Asian intellectual and pedagogical resources. The study was conducted with 300 students at an Australian university for two years. The study found that when teaching and learning activities were developed based on the incorporation of Asian intellectual and pedagogical resources, Asian students enhanced their engagement in learning. This was evidenced by the increase in their academic performance and interactions in class discussions and their positive attitudes toward teaching and learning practices created by the teacher. The findings had a fundamental significance to inform how to address the long-term unsolved issue of internationalizing education in Australia to better engage Asian students in learning.
