To improve the quality of accounting education, especially through the development of relevant and innovative curricula, and a renewed emphasis on effective instruction in accounting programs.
In 2011 at the AFAANZ Accounting Education Symposium members discussed the need for a new initiative that continues the SIG's discussion and enables a means of informative dissemination. The SIG is currently launching a new initiative to its members and the accounting community more generally. A professional periodical dedicated to thought leadership and innovation in Accounting Education that aims to inform readers of latest events, national and international initiatives and updates, news, research and general happenings in the area of accounting education.
Such a professional periodical has been designed to provide a source of dissemination for the Accounting Education research community in Australasia, to encourage and foster further collaborations between academics and with the accounting profession to provide a source of professional development. The periodical will initially be published twice a year and will be disseminated through both the AFAANZ website and list emails to members.
We are particularly interested in hearing from you and you can find a current call for contributions downloadable here. Articles should be of interest and relevance to a broad stakeholder audience, written in an engaging manner and include photographs and images where appropriate. Shorter items that include conference alerts, ﬁlm, media and publications of interest, innovations, useful web-based resources and sites are all highly encouraged.
All communication, items of interest and general ideas can be sent to
Each year the SIG holds a Symposium prior to the AFAANZ Conference. The SIG Annual General Meeting is held each year at the conclusion of the Symposium. The 2013 Symposium will be held on Saturday 6th July in Perth. A full programme is now available for download here.
