Friday Forum and the AICPA Core Competency Framework: Honing Students' Personal Competencies
Johnson, Grace F.
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v11 May 2013
This paper shares one learning technique for honing undergraduate students' personal competencies. The senior accounting capstone course at a small Midwestern private liberal college includes a weekly seminar series, called the Friday Forum, where students and practitioners meet to discuss a current professional accounting article. Since Spring 2004, when the course was first offered, Friday Forum has evolved into a key course component. Following a brief review of the relevant literature, the paper continues with an overview of the capstone course, describes the workings of the Friday Forum, provides student and practitioner feedback about Friday Forum, and closes with an examination of the Forum's advantages and drawbacks from the instructor's four-year experience with it. Suggestions are included about how to adapt Friday Forum to larger classroom environments.
