Accounting Experiences in Collaborative Learning
Edmond, Tracie; Tiggeman, Theresa
American Journal of Business Education, v2 n7 p97-100 2009
This paper discusses incorporating collaborative learning into accounting classes as a response to the Accounting Education Change Commission's call to install a more active student learner in the classroom. Collaborative learning requires the students to interact with each other and with the material within the classroom setting. It is a departure from the traditional lecture method of teaching. Additionally, the paper addresses opposition and support of collaborative learning. Obstacles to collaborative learning are delineated and strategies to counteract these obstacles are explained.
