BEST PRACTICES FOR TEACHING ACCOUNTING COURSES ONLINE

C. Fajardo

National University (UNITED STATES)
This article discusses the best practices in teaching and learning online accounting courses in the second largest, private, nonprofit, and accredited institution of higher learning in California. The university offers a unique one-course-a month format that caters to the needs of working adults with average age of thirty three years. The flexible online degree programs enable students to complete their degree programs in a highly intensive and accelerated time frame. This piece of research provides strategies and techniques that result to more effective and efficient teaching/learning. It includes topics such as course outline, program learning outcomes mapped to institutional learning outcomes, specific courses and related course learning outcomes, asynchronous threaded discussion, synchronous live chat sessions, and grading factors in the assessment of students’ achievement in the course. It is hoped that this research will contribute to a more productive learning and teaching experience in the global virtual classrooms.
