At the 2017 ASU+GSV Summit, we were proud to participate with like-minded leaders in critical conversations around driving sustainable education and talent innovation. Watch the videos of our featured sessions below.
This presentation will describe seven Excel-based active learning projects that are suitable for the introductory managerial accounting course. These projects help students learn managerial accounting topics at a deeper level by requiring students to apply their knowledge to actual business situations using Excel as a tool. The presentation will also discuss how Directed Reading Guides can help your students prepare for class. Webinar participants will be given access to the Excel project materials, suggested solutions, and the directed reading guides.
In this session, the presenters will share small teaching tips that can easily be incorporated into any accounting course. These tips create an effective and engaging classroom experience and promote active learning and long-term retention of the material. Attendees will leave with ideas that they can easily incorporate into their courses.
Stories that connect the classroom to real life are vital in sparking student engagement and learning. Research has shown that real life stories lead to deeper understanding, longer retention, and increased engagement. In this session, a blog containing short news stories, PowerPoint files, and discussion questions all related to accounting in real life and current events will be shared. Resources in MyLabTM Accounting and Learning Catalytics related to this blog will be discussed. A serial case based on a real-life company will also be shared.
The purpose of this session is to familiarize instructors with a flexible and modular approach to teaching and the use of textbooks. You’ll learn how modularity allows you to separate the theoretical and practical content of subjects covered, design the order and depth of topics addressed, and adjust technical content to match the mathematical level of the classroom.
This session will address how issues of economic growth and long-run economic development can be integrated into the teaching of Principles of Economics, and how these topics continue to be at the forefront of research. The emphasis will be on the core ideas of the Solow growth model, endogenous technological change, and the role of institutional factors in long-run economic development.
In this webinar, Professor List will showcase some of his recent field experiments that shed light on important questions, including why women earn less money than men, why inner city schools continue to fail, and why people discriminate. He will also discuss how we can use field experiments to make the world a better place.
This presentation discusses two different but related topics. First, some of the major themes in e-commerce for 2017 and beyond, and second, the value of an undergraduate or MBA course or major in E-commerce. These topics are related because opportunities for our e-commerce students depend on investments that firms make in e-commerce technologies and business ventures. Jobs follow investments.
In this presentation, Dr. Randall Boyle discusses the forces increasing demand for tech workers, the gap between supply and demand of tech workers, and the specific technical skills that are being demanded by industry. Overall career development of tech workers and the use of “career guides” to mentor students is discussed. Examples of how applied learning experiences (high impact practices) can be implemented within curricula are given.
This webinar discusses the value of students with a background in MIS by describing the occupational and salary outlook as well as the nature of business investment in IT/IS in 2017. The value of an MIS degree in large part depends on how firms are using IT and systems simply because business investment in IT will drive the employment market both in terms of numbers of jobs, required skill sets, and the salaries being paid. Based on this analysis we can understand how to prepare our students for their first job interviews and their first years on the job.
