    I retired from corporate life after over 35 years and now teach full time at the undergraduate level.  I'd like to participate in the area where we encourage academics to spend time in a private/corporate role and practitioners spend time in an academic setting.  Another option would be the review of curricula to ensure we educate our students appropriately for their upcoming careers.

    We are heading into a major curriculum overhaul at Fort Lewis College. I am very interested in conducting research in Rec 4 and in implementing recommendations related thereto. I am looking for information on best practices, particularly related to reordering the sequence in which accounting is introduced in the curriculum. I envision and can rationally support the following concept:  Intro to Microeconomics (break-even, return on investment)-->Intro to Managerial/Cost Accounting (information systems that improve long-term economic decision making)-->Intro to Financial Accounting (information systems necessary for external decision making). I have begun research supporting a hypothesis that over-reliance on Financial info for internal decisions is detrimental to the long-term economic health of a firm. (I am originally an empirical capital markets researcher and feel the body of research in this area provides abundant support for the hypothesis I posit above).

    I am also looking for potential education research collaborators to harness the natural experiment that will present itself in our curriculum overhaul.

    Also, would love to hear about in-progress research related to any of the above topics.

    Cheers and good luck.

    We are planning a Pathways Commission Workshop as a part of our annual CCTL event in early of January of 2014.  The event will be held on our campus and will feature presentations and interactive activities related to the Pathways recommendations from experts in all affected areas (accounting practiontioners, accounting faculty, secondary education teachers, education professors, experts in thew area of technology teaching tools, etc.)  

    I was wondering who specifically to contact for guidance on the program for our event and possible support fot it (speakers, resources (including hardcopies of the report), funding, etc.)  

    Please contact me at caquino@niagara.edu with your ideas.  Thank you.

    The implications of the work of the Pathways Commission extend beyond the US. I may be able to offer insights from an international accounting education perpesctive on the implications of implementation.

    I would love to be involved in Action items 5.1.2 & 5.1.3 (specifically 5.1.3).  We definitely need to be offering AP courses in Accounting to our high school students.  I think it's critical to our profession and I would love to be part of the process to see that this does happen in the future.
