We have been teaching IFRS in various levels of the accounting curriculum during the past  four years (from beginning to graduate level stand-alone courses). During this time, we have researched and organized an extensive list of informative IFRS related websites that facilitate in engaging the interest of and imparting IFRS knowledge to beginning accounting students.

This article is structured into the following five sections: (1) IFRS Resources and Websites Available; (2) Providing Incentives for Beginning Accounting Students to Learn IFRS; (3) History, Structure, and Standard-Setting of the IASB; (4) IFRS-U.S. GAAP Comparisons and Status of Global Adoption; and (5) Engaging Beginning Accounting Students with IFRS Videos.


This article is from the Accounting Instructors’ Report, an electronic journal that provides teaching tips and insights to those who teach accounting and other business courses.
