Strategic Partnerships for Accounting Educators

Date and time: 12 May, 12:30PM-1:15PM AEST


In this conversation with Deakin University, Xero and Microsoft, we explore the opportunity of technology enabled strategic partnerships between Business Schools, Business Platforms and Education Technology. How can these partnerships assist to transform teaching and learning of Accounting for today’s digital business environment.

In her research paper in 2020, Accounting Degrees: Their Value Proposition and Relevance , Prof Kim Watty Proposes “strategic partnerships with: edtechs, employers and professional bodies in our tents.”

According to the IMA Exposure DRAFT pg 1 Nov 2021, the role of the professional accountant is evolving. Technology is eliminating many repetitive, routine tasks, allowing time for more strategic, value-added activities. Could the same be said of the role of the accounting educator? Is time a competitor in Higher Education? According to BAFA Scotland 2021 Member survey, the number one challenge facing educators since COVID-19, … accounting instructors time spent on teaching, learning and assessment has increased by 75%.

So much to talk about and so much opportunity with very strong growth projected for international education!  We are excited to bring this conversation on Strategic Partnerships to our community of accounting educators.

Look forward to seeing you soon.
