Finding Connections: Using Accounting Concepts in a Career Planning Class
Wang, Michelle
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v12 Sep 2013
In higher education, the most common challenge for students is the ability to find a connection between one subject that they have learned and another subject. Thus, students' learning becomes compartmentalized and piecemeal. For instance, accounting students may find attending a drawing class boring and a waste of time. Science students may wonder how a music class could help them with their future career. This paper attempts to share ideas about how to use accounting concepts in a career planning class for accounting students. The aim is to encourage and inspire educators to create a connection between diverse subjects to supplement students' learning.
