The Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association is conducting an Audit Educator’s Bootcamp, June 15-17, 2010 at DePaul University. The Bootcamp will begin on Tuesday, June 15 at 9:00 AM and conclude on Thursday, June 17, at 4:00 PM. Participants will be required to do some advance preparation so that their time at the Bootcamp is more beneficial.

Purpose
The camp agenda will include discussions of current practices related to the auditing profession. Coverage will include various topics including audit planning, internal controls, risk, materiality and substantive testing. Participants will receive a set of materials that they can customize for use in their classrooms as well as a list of available resources for audit-related teaching materials.

Audience
The event is designed with two types of faculty members in mind: recent doctoral graduates who do not have auditing experience, but will be teaching auditing courses at their new university and faculty members who currently teach auditing courses, but do not have recent auditing experience.

DePaul Center
One E. Jackson Bld.
