Taking the Student's Lead in Teaching Tax
Dockter, DuWayne
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n7 p73-78 2010
Business education, as a discipline and profession, is evolving in response to changes in our domestic and global environment, technology, subject matter content, and needs of the end-user. In response to these changes, business educators continue to evaluate and refine their instructional methodologies and other components of delivery systems within the learning environment. As with courses, such as individual and corporate income tax, instructors for years have relied on the use of published course lecture materials, forms of media, and packaged supplements, such as tax software. The delivery of information in the form of lectures or other conveyances is often followed up by open-ended and short-response questions, but this is only the beginning for one wishing to meet the needs and expectations of employers and students. Seasoned teachers learn to modify the learning environment to meet the learning styles and special needs of their students. The way in which this is accomplished can make the teaching and learning environment exciting and rewarding. This article incorporates ways in which the teacher can build a successful learning environment while meeting the academic goals and objectives of the course.
