A Study on Applying the Concept of Innovation Management to Accounting Curriculum
Cheng, Kai-Wen
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p625-629 Jun 2008
This study introduces the concept of innovation management into curriculum design through a 4-month teaching project. Through this process, constant review and modification, and continuous analyses and verifications, two conclusions were obtained: (1) The design of teaching content should be oriented to thinking, sharing, and transfer of learning; and (2) Inquiry learning is contributive to interactions between teachers and students: The proposed curriculum design was based on constructivism and used theme-based materials to develop students' thinking and break through disciplinary borders. The cooperation between teachers and students, sharing of knowledge and experience, and collection of data from the rich Internet resources, could facilitate the interactions between teachers and students and further cultivate students' abilities to analyze, criticize, integrate, and solve problems. To sum up, introducing the concept of innovation management into the design of accounting curriculum could indeed cultivate student's abilities to analyze, criticize, integrate, and solve problems and serve as a reference for curriculum designers.
