Annual Meeting Committee Reports
Bill Schwartz reported that the number of submissions for the 2000 Annual
Meeting was 52. The acceptance rate remained constant, between 30 and 35%. We
lost one session due to a decline in submissions. Georgia Saemann (program
chair for 2000 - 2001) will be sending an e-mail message to all members
inviting them to send a variety of submissions. We want to encourage faculty to
participate either through presentations or by attending interesting sessions,
i.e., how to do educational research. For additional information regarding our
program, contact Georgia Saemann at email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Committee on Pedagogy:
Susan Wolcott summarized what she's doing regarding the AICPA competencies and
how this committee will link these to the pedagogy, i.e., "How do you know
what to do unless you know what students are capable of doing?
the use of roadmaps." Susan provided the Executive Committee with a report
summarizing the committee's work in progress. Additional committee members
include Billie Cunningham and Charles Baril. For more information regarding
this committee contact Susan Wolcott at email: email@example.com.
Lynn Mazzola reported this committee was meeting during the annual meeting in
Philadelphia to continue working on a comprehensive survey, which will be
completed during the 2000-2001 academic year. For additional information
