A community of accounting educators
Accounting Cafe is a community of educators who are passionate about how accounting is taught and learned. It was founded on the belief that learning accounting can and should be an enjoyable experience for educators and learners alike.
It started in early 2021 following a series of conversations between Toby York and Paul Jennings, both chartered accountants who despite having spent many years in higher education, understood that there is always much to learn about effective and engaging teaching and learning, especially in the field of accounting.
Accounting Cafe is based on the premise of asking a very simple question:
“What’s the best way to teach…[blank]?”
The “blank” may be something seemingly narrow, like prepayments or depreciation. Or foundational, like the financial statement elements. Or perhaps a broader topic like the future of financial reporting, or the politics of accounting regulation,
We don’t have the answers, but we do believe that by sharing our experiences and resources we have a good chance of stumbling across better teaching methods and improving the learning outcomes of all our students.
The aim is to build a collection of resources and, most importantly, a community that supports accounting educators, whether they are seasoned or novice, teaching doctoral students or high school students.
