Abstract

Whilst investigating current teaching practice at Australian Universities in accounting accredited finance subjects, some innovations were discovered (Jacobsen, 2007). Teaching approach in accredited finance subjects usually involves two hours of lectures and an hour long tutorial, and an invigilated test and examination worth 85% of total marks. Descriptions of learning objectives and teaching and learning activities in finance subjects show a diversity of approaches to teaching and or conception of teaching. Three innovations that indicate student-centric approaches cover lecture activities and assessment. These examples represent an important dissemination to accounting and finance educators. The course coordinator presents the context of each case.
