Pop-up Symposium 2023
Posted by Toby York. Last updated: March 23, 2023
We have exciting news. For the first time, Accounting Cafe members are meeting in person at Hawkwell House near Oxford on Friday 21 April, for “Pop-up Symposium 2023”
This is Accounting Cafe’s first face-to-face gathering. We’ll be enjoying a fun-packed day of short presentations, workshops and discussions on a broad range of accounting education issues. What’s not to like?
It will be a joy to welcome members from across our community: students, teachers, early career lecturers and researchers, and seasoned accounting academics. People from schools, universities and training companies will be represented, which will create an interesting and diverse mix of talents.
Our friends at Wealthvox are hosting their international conference for accounting trainers and facilitators in the same location. They are kindly sponsoring Accounting Cafe so that we can run this fringe event allowing us to enjoy a wonderful setting for our inaugural in-person event.
Peter Frampton, founder of Wealthvox and enthusiastic supporter of Accounting Cafe, will lead a discussion about using Colour Accounting in accounting education. All attendees will receive a free set of teaching materials.
Please contact Paul Jennings or Toby York with your ideas for a presentation or discussion. Alternatively, submit papers and presentations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, following the guidance set out below.
We welcome submissions from anybody but particularly encourage new and less experienced educators to contribute. This is a fantastic opportunity to share your practice with educators from across the world in a small, friendly, supportive environment.

Submitting a presentation or idea
We are adopting the lightning presentation format. This allows for a quick overview of the content with five minutes to present up to five slides (although slides are not required). There will be a further five minutes for questions. You will also have opportunities to discuss your presentation informally with others throughout the day.
Contributions should relate to innovative teaching practices in one or more of these areas:
- teaching approaches
- lesson or course sequencing
- developing learning outcomes
- effective ways to explain principles and concepts
- ways to engage students
- methods of assessments
- in-class activities
Please submit an outline of around 100–200 words to email@example.com by 31 March 2023, including:
- your name
- institutional affiliation, if relevant
- the title of your presentation
- the practice you are sharing
- its impact (e.g., student, colleague feedback, other impacts)
- advice you would give others wishing to adopt it.
There is a small editorial team at Accounting Cafe who will review your submission. It is a light touch process that focusses on the extent to which the contribution meets the guidelines and has the potential to interest our audience. Don’t expect the sort of feedback you might receive from a journal or academic conference.
If we are not able to accommodate your submission at the symposium, we may consider it for publication on the Accounting Cafe website. In this case, we will ask you to prepare an article that meets our Guidelines for Contributors.
