Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of self-discipline based on readings, quizzes, cases, dialogues, & examinations. The instructor will engage each student to encourage the exploration of Accounting Principals, issues and current events by online discussion questions, independent study and problem solving exercises in and out of class will constitute the primary delivery modes of course content.
Each student is expected to accomplish assigned readings and homework problems and to answer discussion questions. The “secret” to success in this class is to be positively engaged and attentive and to not let the work pile up until the end of the week.
