    Pathway to Academia for Accounting Professionals Webcast
    details:

    Webcast Summary

    This 120 minute webcast teaches individuals how to transition into teaching accounting as a "second career". 

    Learn from six individuals who have made the transition to their first teaching opportunity, teaching qualifications, teaching preparation, typical work days, various roles and compensation, and "what would you do differently."

    The goal is to demystify the types of opportunities available in teaching and help you take that first step to become an academic.

    Viewers will learn:

    • What opportunities exist for practitioners to teach at the collegiate level
    • Necessary qualifications
    • Academic life overview
    • How to get started

    Brought to you by the Pathways Commission
    Sponsored by the American Accounting Association and the American Institute of CPAs.

    Bootcamps 2015
    details:

    Come experience this innovative learning experience where faculty and practitioners work together to create a program that helps faculty incorporate current issues of practice into their classes and research! The Pathways Commission’s focus on enhancing the value of practitioner/educator exchanges led to the approach of the largest public accounting firms to support expanding a successful project of the Auditing Section of the AAA.  The enthusiasm of both the firms and the professors is astounding and in the coming year three more bootcamps are planned for management accounting, tax, and accounting information systems.
