ACCT1101 Accounting for Decision Making was rebuilt in 2015 around a blended learning delivery model using active learning pedagogies. Lectures in the course are offered in a mix of face-to-face and online modes and a virtual business world resource has been developed to support experiential learning in business accounting. A highly successful collaborative tutorial program supports student learning and socialisation with a consistent, student-focused experience built in to each tutorial class. Assessment is a mix of online tests, a group business plan assignment and a final examination.


To enhance the student experience around group work, we partnered in 2017 with past ACCT1101 students to form the ACCT1101 Student Support Group to act as partners in supporting other students in their learning around the experiential learning tool and the group assignment.


Over 6,000 students have now completed the redesigned ACCT1101 and innovation continues in the course; this semester we have introduced 4 minute videos to give an overview at the commencement of lectures and an electronic class management system has been trialled and will be finalised this June.


About Teaching and learning seminars

Our teaching and learning seminars focus on innovations and projects that are underway in teaching mathematics, statistics and physics at UQ and other institutions.

We discuss the hot issues, and hear from people who are trying out new things.

Over the past 10 years many new ideas have been generated, collaborations made both within and across disciplines, and teaching grant proposals designed, submitted and received.

Students, staff and visitors to UQ are welcome to attend, and to suggest speakers and topics.

Seminars are usually held fortnightly on Wednesdays from 1pm to 1.50pm in Room 67-442 of the Priestley Building (Building 67).
