Call for Nominations

Innovation in Auditing and Assurance Education Award

The Auditing Section seeks nominations from the Section's membership for the Innovation in Auditing and Assurance Education Award to be conferred at the Auditing Section Midyear Meeting in January 2015. The purpose of this award is to encourage innovation and improvement in auditing and assurance education. The award recognizes a significant activity, concept, or materials. The criteria used to judge the submissions include, but are not limited to:

  1. innovation,
  2. educational benefits, and
  3. adaptability by other educational institutions or to other situations.

Selection of the award will be made by the Section’s Innovation in Auditing and Assurance Education Selection Committee. Nominations may include, for instance, a set of teaching materials, a creative instructional strategy, or an insightful teaching approach. The innovation should have been implemented such that evidence of its success can be evaluated. Award recipients must be willing to share instructional materials with the Section's membership. Individual faculty members or teams of faculty teaching or preparing materials to be used for auditing and/or assurance education are eligible to apply. Individuals may also nominate another faculty member or team of faculty. In the case of team nominations, at least one member of the team must be a member of the Auditing Section. Members of the executive committee are not eligible for the award so should not be included in any team nomination. Visit the Auditing Section’s website to view previous awards here.

Nominations should include:

  • A description of the innovation, including sample materials.
  • Any available evidence that the innovation has been shown to have educational benefits.

Please submit nominations to Jay Thibodeau via email (jthibodeau@bentley.edu) or by mail at the earliest possible date, but no later than July 15, 2014.
