Student participation and satisfaction in the classroom pose a challenge for accounting instructors. Some students often appear uninterested, unprepared, or confused during class, if they attend at all. Instructors must find unique ways to engage students to become active participants during class time to enhance the learning process and increase the comprehension and appreciation of accounting. Many have successfully utilized Audience Response Systems (ARS), also known as clickers. Others have effectively implemented group projects or team activities. This paper examines the combination of using clickers and teamwork in accounting courses over an entire semester.

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.
