An Experiential Approach To Accounting 101

  • Kenneth R. Goosen Professor Emeritus, University of Arkansas


The first course in accounting has always been to some extent an experiential learning experience but often one not enjoyable by all students. Besides lectures students have been required to work out solutions to problems that are very close to the type of work many real world accountants do. While solving problems was a good experience, feedback was often lacking or delayed by several weeks.
