In this section, we look at how teachers, by the way they go about their teaching, can promote student learning in accounting.

Commitment to students and their thinking

Teachers who have high expectations for the diverse students in their classroom focus on positive social and academic outcomes and take students’ thinking seriously. This commitment is underpinned by the following principles:

  • an acknowledgement that all students, irrespective of age, have the capacity to become powerful learners in accounting
  • a commitment to maximising students’ access to practical and theoretical experiences in accounting
  • empowerment of all to develop knowledge, skills, and problem-solving ability in accounting contexts
  • holistic development through accounting for participating effectively as informed citizens
  • relationships and connectedness of people and ideas
  • interpersonal respect and sensitivity
  • fairness, integrity, and ethical decision making.
