2016 Teaching, Learning and Curriculum Section Colloquium

Learn, Reflect, and Grow

Sponsored by KPMG

Need to jump start your teaching efforts? Remember the joy of teaching – and learning?  Participants at this meeting will explore several approaches to accounting education through a "mindfulness" lens that has been applied to many other disciplines. The meeting will start with an experiential session designed to remind you what it’s like to be a student (and perhaps take you out of your comfort zone) when John Simon, a fine artist who has work in the Museum of Fine Art and the Whitney, will coach the participants through an activity and discussion about the power of drawing.  That will create a learning environment that will extend throughout the meeting with an eye toward reflection and integration of the leading theories, cognitive findings, and best practices to support master teachers – and those aspiring to become the very best.  


To meet these objectives, the colloquium has been designed as a very different type of meeting that will offer an intimate and engaging experience. At the conference participants will work together to:


  • Learn
    • How we learn
    • Ways of learning
    • The art and science of learning

  • Reflect
    • Learn through reflection
    • Understand diversity of thought
    • Understand how your teaching perspectives reflect your teaching beliefs, intentions and actions

  • Grow
    • Actualize your personal teaching style
    • Leverage your strengths to counterbalance your weaknesses
    • Develop your teaching brand
