The Audit Practice: A course redesign project

Posted on: January 29, 2008

With L&T funding from Central Queensland University (CQU) and support from Curriculum Design and Development Unit, I am collaborating with Jenny Kofoed, Michael Cowling and Emma Simming Zhang to redesign a core course within CQU’s Bachelor of Accounting program, ACCT19064 Auditing and Professional Practice . We are conducting a series of studies to determine if the learning and teaching of auditing through cognitive apprenticeship can provide students with engaging and meaningful learning experiences, and hope to improve reasoning, problem solving, communication and interaction, among other sets of important skills and graduate attributes, necessary in today’s business environments. We are using a design-based research approach to the iterative development of The Audit Practice, to study the impacts of a learning design that makes use of authentic business scenarios and artifacts in classroom settings through “machinimas” and team-based activities.From now and over the next few months, I will be sharing our experiences in this funded research project in my blogs, and provide insights into our design-based research methodologies. We appreciate any comments and feedback from folks about this or similar endeavours.
