I undertook Accounting Instructors’ Report thirty years ago because of my “belief that [its stated] purpose [was] not now being served adequately. Creative accounting instructors across the country are developing new insights into the teaching of accounting, and technology is rapidly changing the way accounting is taught and practiced. Further, there is a deep-seated frustration that there are not more and better ways to communicate with colleagues to discuss common problems and to exchange ideas on the teaching of accounting.” Today, we continue this same mission, and as we stated in the first issue, “We actively solicit your views, suggestions, and participation in Accounting Instructors’ Report. I look forward to hearing from you.”

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