Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and teaching outcomes including their alignment to LO's
LO1 - 4 The lecture sessions are used to impart information about theories and practice of the provision of accounting information. Explanations and examples of alternative models and accounting techniques will be provided. The tutorial sessions will be spread throughout the semester and are used to discuss and evaluate the theories and practices and will involve computation and practical examples. Some tutorial sessions will be student led.
Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
Skills developed include the development of verbal and written communication, research skills, evaluation and problem solving skills as well as technical expertise.
Assessment (formative and summative)
There will be two components of assessment an essay and a formal examination. The essay will be based on the first part of the module and will require students to consider the theoretical framework of accounting informed by professional and academic literature. The examination will be a mixture of computation and narrative requiring the student to demonstrate an ability to apply and evaluate different aspects of theory and practice.
Research / teaching links
The area of financial reporting is in a constant state of change and the module content will be revised to keep up to date with the latest accounting research, accounting pronouncements and regulatory framework
Supporting equality and diversity
A study pack will be supplied detailing topic areas with reading references and tutorial questions, this information together with lecture slides, examples and weblinks will be available via canvas.
