Dialogue Sessions

Dialogue sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present papers and cases that are in a developmental stage. Authors should indicate their interest in presenting in a Dialogue Session if they have specific issues or areas for further development they would like to discuss with fellow presenters and an audience. Researchers should submit their working papers along with a cover page that includes two or three carefully crafted questions that address specific issues of concern to the researcher. (Do NOT include author identifying information on the cover page.) For example, is there another statistical technique that could improve the data analysis? Are there additional variables that might influence the statistical outcomes? Dialogue sessions will allow presentation and dialogue for five papers with each presenter having 20 minutes for presentation and dialogue. The discussion will be facilitated by the Dialogue Facilitator and each presenter in the session will have access to a copy of each other presenter's submitted paper for dialogue contribution. Presenters and audience members will be asked for suggestions to improve the working papers in the session. Papers may be on any topical area of accounting using analytical, experimental, archival, behavioral, or any other approach. Papers can have an academic, practitioner or pedagogical focus. All submitted papers will receive double-blind review.

Sharing Best Teaching Practices 

The deadline for submitting Teaching Tip proposals is January 17, 2018. Submit your great idea to Jean Thompson, AAA Manager Meetings and Education at jean.thompson@aaahq.org 

Do you have a teaching idea that you use in your classes? Would you like to present it at the meeting and be featured as a presenter on the program? Then you are invited to submit a proposal for a 10-minute presentation during the Sharing Best Teaching Practices session.  The session moderator will work with accepted presenters to fine tune their ideas into 10-minute attention-grabbing presentations.  We welcome ALL educators to submit proposals. This is your chance to share with the accounting teaching community that great idea for how to teach a difficult concept, how to design and lead an effective group project, how to establish a nurturing and inspiring culture in the classroom, or how to incorporate critical thinking and professional judgement into accounting courses.  We are especially looking for ideas that integrate the Pathway's "Vision Model" or embed big data and analytics experiences into courses and curriculum. 

This session is sponsored by the Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA).
