Nicolas Blais, Université du Québec à Trois Rivières: Accounting Intervention Project in a Context

Howard Teall Award for Innovation in Accounting Education

The winning submission to the 2018 Howard Teall Award is a collaborative project in which students improved their professional skills by delivering a program of accounting education to primary school managers in Haiti, focusing on sustainable accounting practices for their institutions. Via a five-month planning period and three-week project delivery in Haiti, students employed skills they will need as future CPAs – project management; adapting theory to practice; a global outlook and engagement; understanding an unfamiliar working environment and context; delivering results in oral and written formats; adopting professional ethics; and practicing accounting for the public good. Since their return from Haiti, the students have continued their work, educating others about the project within their home province. The second wave of this award-winning endeavour took place in May 2018.

Susan Wolcott, WolcottLynch: Student Assumptions About Knowledge: How They Can Help and Hinder Student Learning

Student Assumptions About Knowledge: How They Can Help and Hinder Student Learning

This workshop will introduce King and Kitchener’s reflective judgment model, which outlines developmental stages related to the assumptions individuals hold about knowledge. A substantial body of empirical research has demonstrated that student assumptions about knowledge are significantly related to the way they respond to open-ended problems, and that students must be given developmentally-appropriate challenges. A major implication is that professors can enhance their efforts at developing student skills by assessing their levels of thinking and by assigning problems that are appropriate for those levels.
