Hi, and thanks for visiting my blog.
I will tell you a few things about myself. I will also give you some of my perspectives as the unit co-ordinator (and ‘tour guide’) for Accounting, Learning & Online Communication.
One of the initial challenges for us in our unit will probably be to adjust how we learn. You will not be able to simply rote-learn ‘clear-cut facts’ about accounting and reproduce them in our assessments. What you will also need to do is to take the time and effort to understand for yourself what some of the key concepts we are studying about accounting mean to you. The assessed learning tasks in our unit are designed to help you experience this change in how you learn.
There are also pages on our assessed learning tasks: PeerWise and Assignments . I will give you my tips and thoughts as we go along through the term.
And there are pages setting out the emails I will send everyone in our course during the term and also my tweets (@MartinTurner12), videos and a few extra pages from me.
Should be a fun journey!
I hope you come ‘on-board’ as we explore the (possibly) exciting world of accounting.
