Abstract

In this paper I discuss the advantages and challenges of using active learning, when teaching an accounting ethics course offered in higher education (see Footnotes 1 and 6). The willingness of an instructor to use active learning in an accounting ethics course may be influenced at least in part by that instructor’s assessment of the advantages and challenges of using active learning. Consequently, my paper may be of assistance to instructors with experience in teaching an accounting ethics course and to instructors who are preparing to teach their initial accounting ethics course.
