AFAANZ Accounting Education SIG Symposium 2022

Accounting Educators: Influencing Change

Join us in Melbourne, Australia for the chance to take part in a symposium on accounting education that celebrates best practice education and research through a program of papers, panel sessions, and presentations by academics and industry.

This year the symposium will engage you with the theme ‘Accounting Educators: Influencing Change’. We have a full programme for the day. We will hear from award-winning teachers and researchers and engage you in hands-on workshops and discussions.

After the SIG, join us for the post-event dinner at Mabu Mabu where we will have a talk from head chef and owner Nornie Bero about influence in the Indigenous community and her mission to put Indigenous ingredients in kitchens across Australia.

Our keynote speaker for 2022 is Dr Amanda White, AAUT Teaching Excellence Award winner (2020). Amanda will address the topic of “Successes and Failures in Influencing Accounting Education”.
