The Teaching, Learning and Curriculum Section of the American Accounting Association is hosting a Colloquium on the Science of Learning, This day and a half Colloquium will begin on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. and conclude on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.
We are happy to announce our in-person conference will now transfer to a virtual setting while also preserving the key elements of our traditional program. Our members from around the world will be able to attend the meeting, interact with each other, and strengthen the work being shared. To make this a reality, we’ve designed and built a conference that lets you participate in sessions in a flexible and personalized way.
The Brookings Institute defines the science of learning as a relatively young field which draws from multiple disciplines to study the ways in which people acquire knowledge, skills, and competencies and to answer the questions of why some strategies for learning work better or worse than others. Recent disruptions to the learning process in the accounting curriculum have put many theories to the test. Join top scholars in education as we explore the science behind teaching strategies for effective student engagement and learning.
The Colloquium features a choice of teaching track or research track panel discussions, EdTalks, dialogue sessions, workshops and hands-on activities. Attendees come together for joint sessions that include plenary and closing speakers, poster sessions and networking opportunities emphasizing the scholarship of teaching and learning within the accounting discipline. The day and a half event will provide exposure to disruptive forces in education, best practices for online/remote learning, course design, student engagement, academic writing and current topics in accounting education
The Colloquium will be facilitated by faculty speakers collaborating with education experts from Texas-area universities. The goal will be to furnish attendees with discussion points and developed instructional materials informed by science for immediate use in class or a program of scholarship. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop.
