MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear TLC Section Members
I hope that 2020 has been kind to you thus far and that you have all enjoyed connecting with great students as we open a new decade together.
The fourth Teaching Learning and Curriculum Midyear Colloquium sponsored by KPMG took place on November 8 and 9, 2019 in Tampa, Florida. We opened the meeting with an industry panel aimed at helping attendees envision curriculum needs into the next decade and closed the meeting with a deeper look at the Gen Z worldview. Remaining sessions focused on moving research from early stages to working through editor comments, ED Talks on improving the classroom experience, the scholarship of teaching, and embracing disruptive technology. The conference was a huge success thanks to organizers, presenters, attendees, KPMG, and AAA staff. Thank you for making this conference a fantastic teaching and research learning experience. Plan to join us in the fall for the fifth annual TLC Midyear Colloquium tentatively planned for November 6-7, 2020.
Thank you to Sara Kern who has stepped up this year as our new chair for the TLC Awards Committee. The committee is accepting nominations for Outstanding Research in Accounting Education, Outstanding Instructional Contribution and Hall of Honor Inductee through April 1, 2020. Please take a moment to think about whose work inspires you and nominate them today. More information about those nominations is included in this newsletter.
Our next AAA Annual meeting is in Atlanta, GA, August 7-12, 2020. The Effective Learning Strategies (ELS) and Emerging and Innovative Research submission deadlines are April 2, 2020. You can request that your ELS submissions be considered for one of three AICPA awards. To find out more about the awards visit AICPA’s Educator Awards.
I look forward to connecting with you in Atlanta!
